Gymnastics Tips and How-to's



Backwards Reach


This exercise will help to strengthen the muscles of upper back.
Also stretches the joints of the back and some of the muscles which pull your shoulders forward.
This exercise is very helpful because it works on those areas which help you to maintain an eficient sitting posture.

It can be done as follows :

By sitting on a chair, Push your chair back from the desk far enough so that you can bend forward without touching the desk.

Gently bend over so that your tummy is touching your thighs.

Now, clasp your hands together behind your back.

By keeping your tummy on your thighs, lift the arms, shoulders and head up as high as you can without causing any strain.

In this position hold a count of 6 while you feel the joints stretching and the muscles of your arms and back working.

Repeat this for 5 times.
