The pectoral muscles are involved in lifting and rotating the arms. If you do not stretch your chest, then the risk of injury during strength exercises, which requires throwing your arms over your head, and also in everyday life with sudden movements of the shoulder joint or arms, increases.
1. Stretching the small and large pectoral muscles
To complete the exercise, you need solid surfaces to support, chairs are great at home. Not recommended for beginner athletes and people with a weak muscle corset.
- From a standing or kneeling position, place your forearms on firm surfaces.
- Straighten your legs and place them on your toes.
- Do not bend your lower back, feel the extension of your chest.
- Hold for 10 seconds.
