Gymnastics Tips and How-to's



Leaning Arch


This exercise stretches muscles which are constantly placed in a shortened position or which act statically, that is, without movement, as stabilizers of your shoulders and upper arms. If your upper arms and shoulders are not satabilized in this way, you cannot position your hands accurately.

Muscles which work in this way are more likely to develop pain than those which move.

This can be done as follows :

Stand and stretch your arms up over your head.

Now, interlace your fingers.

Pres your arms backwards as far as you can.

Now, slowly lean to the left until you feel a stretch along your right side and hold for a count of 10.

Now, relax.

Repeat this to the right also.

Then, repeat 3 times to each side.
