Hey, we’re on a roll and why stop this train that’s headed for some excellent feelgood movements?! I remind you though that you should remember to breathe deeply and deliberately when placing yourself in these stretches. Ideally, you will hold each stretch for no more than 30 seconds.
From an upright position with your shoulder blades pinched back and arms at your sides, reach one arm behind your back, bend that elbow and grab the other arm at the elbow. Tilt your head away from the rear arm. You will feel a stretch in the shoulder and neck of the rear arm. Hold this position, release the stretch, then ease into the position again. Switch arms and stretch the opposite side for equal time. (excerpt from Unlock Your Greater Life available now on Amazon)

Have someone take a picture of you holding a stretch. Stay diligent in your flexibility efforts and take an after photo 90 days from your first photo. How does it compare?
