A Stretch to Change Your Life

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!
