The third week of March is an Arm Extension Bicep Stretch. With this stretch, the arm will perform a backward reaching movement that you will feel in the top of the biceps, the chest and maybe a little into the forearm.
This movement can be difficult for some people to perform, so I’ve given a modification to make it easier that involves a strap. The strap will be the only accessory needed for this week’s stretch. Please skip this week if you have a shoulder injury.
How to perform:
Modification: if you can’t reach the other arm, use a strap or belt around the arm as shown in the far right “Modified” photo.
