Overhead Arms

While walking, stretch arms straight over your head. Then, bring arms down, making loose fists while doing so; elbows should be pointing to the ground and fists should be about level with your chest. Let your arms move naturally to the pace of your steps. Try alternating this move with the previous Extended Arms exercise. Repeat several times before going on to the next move. (Counting while doing this may be difficult, so do however many feel right to you.)
