Stick Chest Stretch Exercise Instructions: The top video demonstrates two movements to stretch the pectoral muscles (chest:. directly overhead, and diagonally overhead. The center video demonstrates the overhead movement only. The bottom video demonstrates a twistiing stretch for the obliques and spinal rotators.

Equipment & Benefits: The Stick is light and versatile. It’s used to improve balance and stretching. Click the link to read more about the stick. LINK

Modification: Don’t bring the stick all the way back. Cut the movement down by stopping when you feel you’ve had enough. Recognize your limits, and do not force the stretch.

Cautions: If your chest or front shoulder is tight, this exercise will be difficult for you. If that’s the case, then the diagonal move will be harder to do, and you’ll experience discomfort in your neck. Take it easy, and maintain a slow pace.

EXERCISE DOs and DONTs – As with all exercise programs, when using exercise videos that appear on this site, you need to use common sense. If your muscles are weak, either do the modifications, or don’t attempt this exercise if it’s too difficult for you. When starting an exercise program, be sure to discuss your plans with your healthcare provider
