- Shoulder girdle stretch
The back scratch exercise is great for relieving tension in the shoulders. Each time you perform the back scratch try and move your hand higher up your back and push your chest out further. This is a good exercise for swimmers or anyone with tightness in their shoulders. Hold the stretch for longer periods and do many sets throughout the day to keep improving.
- Lower both shoulders and keep them level.
