Gymnastics Tips and How-to's



Head Turn


Head turn is useful for sternomastoid muscles (clavicular division), neck joints.

Certain postures, such as that involved in working with your head bent and turned to one side, have a tendency to shorten the sternomastoid muscles situated at the front and sides of your neck. This exercise stretches those muscles.

Steps for doing this exercise :

  • You can do this exercise by sitting.
  • Let your head and neck drop gently backwards.
  • When doing like this, if you feel any pain, do not bend as far.
  • In this position, turn your head fully to the right.
  • While doing, you should feel the stretch on the left front of your neck while you hold for a slow count of 5.
  • Repeat, this time turning your head to the left.
  • Do this for 3 times to each side.
