Across the Back Stretch

With legs hip-width apart and knees slightly bent, stretch arms straight out to your sides so your body forms a "T." Hold for one second. Keeping arms straight, swing them straight out in front of you, so they're level with your chest, and bring one hand over the other. Hold for one second and feel the stretch across your back. Repeat three more times, alternating which hand is on top.
