Sitting at your desk can close up your body, your energy levels drop and your body feels stiff.
In this video I will show you 3 stretches you can do while sitting at your desk. There are many stretches out there, but there is no point knowing many and doing none . Let’s do these 3 first.
- Fingers and wrists
Stretch each finger at a time. No need to hold it for a certain amount of time, go with how you feel. I feel I just need to give them a quick stretch. Do the same with the wrists.
Don’t force until they make noises, until the “crack”, that’s not the point.
- Sides of body
It is enough to lead to one side and gently pull the hand on top. When you come out of the stretch make sure to always tense your abdominal muscles so you don’t use your lower back to bring your body upright.
- Chest and shoulders
Interlock your fingers at the back and lift the arms. Chest proud and breathe normally.
These are the 3 upper body stretches. Simple and fast.
