A Stretch to Change Your Life

April 5, 2016 admin

The pectoral muscles (or pecs) are familiar to most of us as chest muscles. They work very hard in exercises like push-ups, bench press in the gym and gradually get tighter with everyday activities like lifting, carrying and working on computer screens.

Tight pecs can be a major contributing factor to many different aches and pains. If you have neck pain, upper back/ thoracic pain, shoulder pain or chest pain (always check with your doctor with chest pain first!!), chances are very high that your tight pec muscles may be involved – especially if they are recurrent or long-standing issues.

If you are troubled by any of these aches, try this simple stretch to change your life!
