A good way to begin this New Year is to find those areas of our bodies which hamper our ability to move freely, to breathe deeply, to lift the burdens we carry both metaphorically and literally in our daily lives and build strength and flexibility there.
This first installment will focus on the upper back. Remember to initiate and follow through this movement NOT from the arms but from the shoulder and upper back area.
Do this each day starting with 1 set of 5-8 repetitions and working up to 2 sets of 8-12 reps.
If you own rubber tubing you can add some resistance to the movement in this way.
