SHOULDER & NECK STRETCHES
Are you in front of a computer all day? Do you tend to hunch forward and sit in an awkward position for a prolonged period of time every day? If so, it is very possible you develop tension in your upper back & neck. If you experience shoulder blade pain, tightness and/or restriction in your movements, make sure to watch these simple neck & shoulders static & dynamic stretching examples below and start to incorporate more movement in your daily life & regain your flexibility!
Whether you are about to work out, you have been sitting all day, or you have just got up from your bed, I recommend to warm up your body with Dynamic Stretching. Dynamic stretches are active movements which help to warm up your joints safely, activate and loosen up your back muscles, improving flexibility and preventing injury.
On the contrary, Static stretches are usually held for 10 to 30 seconds and don't involve active movement. Therefore if your muscles are cold, don’t perform static stretches as you may pull some muscles, and only do them post-exercise.
