How to Stretch Your Upper Body for Female Strength Training

Learn how to stretch your upper body from personal trainer Erin Sharoni in this Howcast workout video.


Hey my name is Erin and I'm a former U.S. Junior Olympic certified swim coach and personal trainer and fitness is my passion, so I cannot wait to share it with you guys. You want to stretch out the front of your legs, the calves, especially if you're running or doing any leg work. You're going to bring one knee to meet the other. You can grab it with both hands, you can grab it with one hand, if you're balance is off you can hold onto a chair. Just make sure you feel the stretch going down the front. Switch, other side.

You can have one arm up, whatever is comfortable. If you've been doing any upper body work, here's a nice stretch. Bring your hands behind your back, roll your shoulders down, and gently stretch over. You should feel a nice stretch down the back of the legs and a nice stretch in the biceps, opening up your chest. If you've been doing shoulder work, bring one arm across the other. If you've been doing any arm work, biceps, just stretch out the wrists. And of course your triceps. Pull gently on the opposing elbow. Nice and easy. Couple arm rolls and you're all nice and loose.
