This weeks stretch is mid-back stretch, this is a great little stretch for golfers, swimmers and tennis players who use their backs a lot whilst doing their chosen sport.

It lengthens out the muscles in the middle of your back (Middle and lower Trapezius)

I like to do this from sitting but you can do it standing too.

Here’s how to do this stretch:

  • Start sitting crossed legs or standing
  • Place your elbows, forearms and palms together
  • As you raise your arms above your head, keep your elbows together as long as you can
  • As your forearms make it to your ears create a circle with your arms, keeping your elbows open
  • Breathe IN on the upward motion and OUT on the downward motion
