- Shoulder girdle stretch
The back pat is an active stretch for the shoulder girdle. Anyone who performs office work or has tight chest muscles would benefit from the back pat. No equipment is required so you could perform the back pat between sets of bench presses or between writing emails. After performing this exercise regularly you may feel your posture and shoulder mobility improve.
