Chin Chest Tuck

The purpose of the Chin-Chest Tuck is to loosen up the back of your neck and upper spine area.

Grab your hand weights and follow these steps:

1. Stand looking straight ahead with your feet below your hips and your arms dangling at your sides, holding the weights with your palms facing inward.

This is the starting position. Make sure your feet are parallel to one another.

2. Exhaling slowly, tuck your chin into your chest (see Figure 6-1); take two or three slow breaths while you're in this position.

If you can, touch your chin to your chest. Feel the back of your neck and upper spine stretching.

3. Inhaling slowly, return to the starting position (see Step 1).

Repeat this exercise three to six times, pausing to rest between each repetition.
