Stand straight with your hands at your sides and feet shoulder width apart, keep your back straight and hips facing forward. Slowly rotate your shoulder forward, up, back and down your back, dropping your shoulders away from your ears. Pause here to stretch your chest. Then rotate your shoulders in the other direction. Repeat the movement until the set is complete. Breathe deeply and continuously. This exercise helps to open the chest and relieve tension in the neck and shoulder joints.
