Head Forwards Stretch (Neck and Shoulder Stretches)

How to Do the Head Forwards Stretch

This simple neck stretch will help you gain more flexibility in your neck and prevent the buildup of tension after a workout.

The neck muscles are very sensitive. Perform these moves slowly and with control. Don’t overstretch and pull unnecessarily as this may cause pain.

Head Forwards Stretch

STEP 1: Stand with feet hip-width apart or sit with your shoulders relaxed. Arms are relaxed by your sides. Keep your back straight.
STEP 2: Gently drop your head forward until you feel the stretch in both the neck and upper back. Hold for 8-12 seconds.

 

This stretch will help you feel better after a long day and refresh you when you’re tired.
