Soothe repetitive stress with a sequence that eases tension in the arms, shoulders, and wrists.
8. Shoulder Opener This position internally rotates your arms and stretches your shoulders and wrists. While sitting, bend your knees and place your feet on the floor, wider than hip distance apart. Press each elbow against the inside of its respective knee. From there, bend both elbows and fold your forearms toward your torso. Press the elbows against your knees, and press the back of your hands against the sides of your body. Slide the hands up to increase the challenge or down to reduce it. To increase the stretch, squeeze your knees gently together and breathe to release tension.
