Chest Stretch with a Partner

Getting a partner to pull the arms back gently can be an effective way of stretching the chest. Just make sure you communicate and let them know when you can feel a gentle stretch.

Teaching Points

  • Hold your arms out behind you, parallel to the floor.
  • Your partner should be standing behind you and holding your lower arms.
  • Get your partner to gently apply pressure as if trying to push your wrists together.
  • Hold for between 10 and 30 seconds.
