Although the fourth stretch in February looks very similar to week two, it is different. This stretch, called the Bridge with Interlaced Fingers, gives more stretch across the chest and also works the biceps.
Please skip this week’s stretch if you have difficulty getting up and down from the floor, or if you currently have shoulder or back injuries. The only thing you may need for this stretch is a strap or belt.
How to perform:
*Tip: if you can’t interlace the fingers then use the strap by grabbing it and inching the hands as close to each other as you can. Then pull on the strap and try to rotate the palms skyward at the same time.
