Chest Stretches for Tight or Sore Muscles – Ask Doctor Jo


Hey everybody, it’s Wonder Woman, I mean Doctor
Jo. Just fighting injuries here across the world. I got an email from my askdoctorjo.com
website asking about some chest stretches, so I’m gonna show you some very simple, but
very efficient chest stretches. Here we go. So the first stretch, you need to find a nice
empty corner where you can get really close to it. Your gonna step into the corner, put
one foot in front of the other, kind of like a staggered stance. And then you’re gonna
put each hand on one of the walls. So you’re right going forward into the corner. You’re
gonna bend your front knee forward, and lean your body into the wall like you’re truing
to put your head into the corner. You want to squeeze those shoulder blades back, just
like if somebody had their hand right on the middle of your back, and you’re trying to
squeeze them together. So you lean in, lean forward. And you hold it for 30 seconds, and
then come back out and you’re gonna do that 3 times. If you want to get your arms, your
upper arms involved a little bit, you can bring your arms a little higher up and then
again, lean in, bend that front knee forward, squeeze those shoulder blades back. Hold it
for 30 seconds, and do that 3 times each. The next one you want to take your hands and
lock them behind your back. What you’re gonna do is you’re gonna push your arms down, and
push your chest outwards. So it’s a combination move. Push it down, and push your chest out.
And hold that for 30 seconds, 3 times each. Alright the last stretch is gonna be on the
ground. So the last one is a nice relaxing stretch for your shoulder. You’re gonna lie
down on your back and then you’re gonna cross your leg over. And the opposite shoulder once
your knee gets over here, it’s gonna be the one you’re gonna stretch. So you’re just gonna
relax your body, put your arm straight out. And you’re gonna take a deep breath in. And
then relax. And if you can see my arm when I breath in deeply, it actually goes off of
the floor. And that’s how you stretch out that shoulder. So same thing, you can do that
for about 5-10 times, just nice deep breath. Back down, and then switch sides and do the
same thing on the other shoulder. So there you have it. Those are 3 simple chest stretches.
