Back Stretch

David Martinez
Open your chest muscles and relax your shoulders and back with this anytime stretch.

Stand in upright position, and hold a 3- to 5-pound weighted ball behind your back in palms with fingertips laced together (you can perform this without a ball). Arms should be straight and ball held behind hips. Drop chin, keep shoulders down, and squeeze shoulder blades together. Hold for 15 to 20 seconds. Repeat as often as needed.
