Description: Using a squat rack, door frame, or the corner of a wall, position yourself in a parallel fashion. Raise your arm so that the elbow and shoulder joints are both at 90-degree angles (90/90). Step forward with the inside leg to open the chest region. Stop when you feel a light stretch and hold this position for 20 – 30 seconds. Repeat on the opposite side.

Key Points:
1) While stretching, keep the rib cage down so that the low black is flat (not arched)

2) Turn your head away from the stretching arm for additional stretching

3) Control your breath. Big inhales and big exhales while stretching
