Pectoralis Major

(these are large strong muscles so go slowly just till you feel a stretch then move deeper as the original stretch fades)

  • At doorway, exposed beam or wall, place right arm straight out to side and bend elbow to a 90 degree angle
  • Place that hand and elbow just inside wall, body even with wall.
  • Move right foot forward and turn torso to the left
  • Repeat the stretch continuing to find the slight stretch, letting it fade and then finding the stretch again. Use your breath.

The Pectoralis major is a large fan shaped muscle. In order to stretch its entirety, one must use three separate positions. The 90 degree angle is one but also move the elbow slightly upwards and downwards to stretch the entire muscle.
