✨My Work Stretch Routine: Part 2✨ Today I have 6 more dynamic stretches you can do at your desk (Check out yesterday's Part 1!) 🤓.
I got so many requests asking where the stand desk and chair are from. Both from 👉🏽 @fully_us. I LOVE mine!!!
TOMORROW morning I will be giving away a Jarvis Stand Desk from @fully_us! So don't miss that post!! It will be really easy to enter too ☺️👌🏽🎉.
Exercises ✅: Move through each exercise at a moderate pace for 2 minutes. -
1️⃣ Wrist Circles: Roll the wrists in one direction for 1 minute, then reverse the direction for another minute. This releases all the tension in the wrists and forearms caused from repetitive motions like typing and clicking. -
2️⃣ Body Rolls: Holding onto the edge of your desk, Fold yourself forward keeping the spine straight, releasing the neck last, then articulate through your spine on the way up, and release your head back. Do this for 2 minutes.
3️⃣ Neck Release: Gently release the head back and open the throat, and gently release the head forward and stretch the back of the neck. Keep the shoulders soft. -
4️⃣ Thoracic Spine Release: Roll through the spine, focusing on releasing the thoracic spine (the middle of the back). Place your elbows on the edge of the desk with your palms touching each other. Upper arms should be almost parallel to one another. Hips should be over heels.
5️⃣ Warrior 1 Side Bend: Stand in Warrior 1 with your desk to the side of you. Warrior 1 stance 👉🏽 Front knee is at a 90 degree angle with foot pointing forward. Back leg is straight with foot pointing at a 45 degree angle. Front and back foot can be splitting the middle (meaning your feet don't have to be on a tightrope). Hips square, belly in. 🙏🏽 Take the outside arm and reach the arm out, up and over, bending at the waist. Keep the abs firm as you bend to the side. You will feel the side body and front hips stretch.
6️⃣ Shoulder/Chest/Neck Release: Standing at the edge of your desk, with your desk at about hip height (depending on flexibility), hands clasped behind on the desk. Drag hands along desk away from you to open chest, throat, shoulders and neck. Then return to center.
