Ball Chest Stretch

Primary Muscle Group: Chest

Muscle Groups Worked in This Exercise:

Preparation: Sit on the ball with your feet on the floor. Clasp your hands behind your back.

Breathing: Inhale as you roll your shoulders; exhale as you bend forward.

Execution: Inhale and roll your shoulders up, back and then down. Reach all the way down towards your knuckles and squeeze your shoulder blades together. Lift your sternum high. Exhale and bend forward; your abdomen will be on your thighs. Lift your arms and reach through your knuckles to increase the stretch and hold this for 20-30 seconds. Breathe normally. Inhale and rise.

Comments: If you're tired of the ball, go ahead and try this sitting on the floor. It's a great chest and upper arm stretcher.
