This is a great stretch for relieving tight chest muscles - a common contributor of poor posture.
- Sit tall on the exercise ball and place your hands in the pockets of the Pilates band.
- Now take the band and place it behind your head with your elbows bent at about 90 degrees. Drop your elbows down until you feel a slight stretch in your chest muscles.
- Hold this position for at least 20 seconds, then relax. For the most benefit, repeat this exercise 2-3 times. Do this stretch every day.
