If you tend to experience tension in the upper part of your back regularly, in between your shoulder blades, this programme is for you!
Quite naturally, as your chest develop -and later on, as you breastfeed and carry your baby, the muscles in your chest may get a lot tighter. This process triggers a series of muscular and articular compensations
The compensations occurring in your body result in your shoulders rolling forward, and your rhomboids and upper trapezius being overused. This is a vicious circle: by being overused, these muscles do not just create pain, they make you stronger in the wrong posture.
By following the 4-step programme above, not only can you release some tensions, you can prevent their recurrence.
Video 1 – Repeat each variation shown on the video 8-10 times, slowly.
Video 2 – Step 3 & 4 – Chest opening exercises / Tie a stretchband to a steady horizontal bar if you can’t make it to class!
