Overview

The spinal stretch is an exercise that targets the traps, or the muscles that run along the back of the neck and shoulders. It is a simple exercise that can be done at home or in the gym. To do the spinal stretch, stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and your arms at your sides. Slowly bend forward at the waist, keeping your back straight and your knees slightly bent. Allow your arms to hang down in front of you and your head to drop towards the floor. Hold this position for 30 seconds to 1 minute, then slowly return to standing. The spinal stretch can help to improve flexibility and range of motion in the upper back and shoulders. It can also help to relieve tension in the neck and shoulders.
