Angel Stretch: rhomboids/ latissimus dorsi / trapezius

This is a stretch/exercise to get movement and blood flow through your upper back muscles – rhomboids/ latissimus dorsi / and trapezius.

  • Lean against the wall with your legs slightly bent. You want to keep your hip, back, shoulders, and arms pressed against the wall through the entire movement.
  • Place the back of your arms against the wall in 90 degree angles.
  • Bring your elbows down towards your body in a smooth, slow motion as far as you can while maintaining contact with the wall.
  • Now, slowly bring arms over your head, still in 90 degree angles.
  • Repeat several times.
