How to: Kneel on the ground, then place your wrists on the floor or on an elevated surface. Keeping your arms straight, drop the chest and armpits towards the floor. Your gaze can be towards the hands or straight in front of you. Alternate contracting your abs and letting your chest hang. Hold for one minute.
Good for: Reversing the effects of sitting all day by putting the shoulders in the proper alignment, and upper back in an aligned position.
Benefits: Promotes better posture, less shoulder impingement, opens tight shoulder and lats muscles, and better thoracic spine movement.
