Back Slaps Wrap Around Stretch

How to do the Back Slaps Wrap Around Stretch:

 

  1. Standing straight, with your feet hip-width apart and your arms outstretched and parallel to the ground, is the proper posture.
  2. At the front of your body, cross your right arm across your left arm. Your arms need to be parallel to your torso.
  3. Gently place your hands on your upper back and shoulders while maintaining your arms crossed. The left shoulder blade should be touched by your left hand, and the right shoulder blade by your left hand. This move is like slapping oneself in the back.
  4. Reestablishing a perpendicular angle with your body, cross your arms again, this time with your left arm crossing over your right.
  5. Reaching your hands towards your upper back and shoulders will allow you to repeat the back-slapping action. Your right hand should be placed on your left shoulder blade, and vice versa for your left.
  6. Exhale fully before beginning the back-slapping action.
  7. After a few sets of the routine, progressively widen the range of motion as you get more at ease.
