Flexibility and Strengthening Exercises

These exercises are useful to get you in shape for more vigorous aerobic exercise or as part of your warm-up and cool-down routines.

Neck Exercises

1. Heads Up
This exercise relieves jaw, neck, and upper back pain. 
Sit or stand straight. 
Gently slide your chin back. 
Keep looking forward as your chin moves backward. You will feel the back of your neck lengthen and straighten. Put your finger on your nose and then draw straight back from your finger.

2. Two-Way Neck Stretch 
In heads-up position (Exercise 1), and with your shoulders relaxed, 
a. Turn slowly to look over your right shoulder. Then turn slowly to look over your left shoulder. 
b. Tilt your head to the right and then to the left. Move your ear toward your shoulder. Do not move your shoulder up to your ear.

Caution: Don't do these exercises if they cause neck pain, or pain or numbness in your arms or hands.
