Quick Reference

A simple upper-body stretching exercise which often forms part of a warm-up routine.

▪ Stand upright with your feet slightly apart. Keep your shoulders pulled back and always face straight ahead; maintain this posture throughout the exercise. With one arm, reach down the side of one leg while raising the other arm up the opposite side towards the ear. When you feel a tension in your muscles, hold the position for a few seconds and repeat in the other direction.
