Goalpost Stretch (With Wand)

Goalpost stretch (with wand)

  1. Lie on your back on the floor (or a firm surface) with your knees bent.
  2. Hold a wand in both hands. (You can also use a broom handle or anything stiff and about 3 feet long.) Rest your elbows on the floor, pointing out to the sides. Bend your elbows like the letter "L" and hold the wand above your chest. This is your starting position.
  3. Move the wand back over your head as far as possible without pain, keeping your elbows on the floor. If you can, rest the wand on the floor as you hold the stretch.
  4. Hold for 15 to 30 seconds. Then return to the starting position.
  5. Repeat 2 to 4 times.
