Having tension in your back and shoulders is a common complaint typically caused by too many hours sitting at a desk or hunched over a steering wheel in traffic. These proactive measures to alleviate the tension from your upper body will help prevent the chronic pain or tension headaches that can prevent you from exercising and performing your best.
Stretch your neck. Drop your head to your chest, roll your head to the right and inhale. Exhale as you roll your head to the left side and then back to the right. Or do slow neck rolls while keeping your shoulders down.
Stretch your shoulders. Shrug a few times and squeeze the muscles in your shoulders. Roll your shoulders backwards and then forward. Put your arms straight out with your hands flexed upwards (wrists pointing toward the ground) and make small circles with your arms.
Use these tips so you can feel and perform at your best.
