Back and Triceps Stretch

The back and triceps stretch helps to stretch the upper back and the back of the upper arm. It keeps that area open and flexible.

Step 1

Sit tall, with body lifted through the spine and ankles crossed.


Step 2

Lift and cross left arm behind the back and touch the palm to the back. Use right arm to increase the stretch by pressing against the fleshy part of left arm. Hold for 30 to 60 seconds, then release. Repeat with right arm.
