Trapezius Muscle

Hi there,

This week’s stretch is for your trapezius muscle (large shoulder and upper/mid back muscle) . One of the functions of this muscle is for neck flexibility so tight traps = lack of neck flexibility – as well as this stretch, try a little self massage for your upper trapezius, which is the one located at the top of your shoulders smiley

Stand with your feet hip distance apart, reach both your arms forward at shoulder height and interlock your fingers.

Turn your palms away from you and push outwards, feeling the stretch in your arms and upper part of your back.

Keep your knees soft, abs engaged and toes pointing forwards throughout this stretch.

Enjoy smiley 
