How to preform the pectoral stretch:

  • Stand up in front of an open doorway.
  • Place your forearm along the wall while aligning your elbow and shoulder in a 90 degree angle.
  • Lean your body forward until you feel a stretch across your chest and the front part of your arm.
  • You can feel a different stretch by placing the arm lower than horizontal to emphasize the upper chest, place the arm perpendicular to stretch the middle portion or place the arm higher than parallel to stretch the lower portion.

Pro tip:
Scheduling regular work breaks to perform 1-2 minutes of this will help release some tension.
