Upper Body Cool Down Stretch After Workout

Did you know that working out your upper body contributes to a faster metabolism?

The upper part of our body carries the most tension, not just while exercising but through everyday stress.

Today's workout routine is for the upper body, as a  cool-down after a workout routine. 

Remember to stretch after you are done with your workout routines to avoid injuries. 

This is an 8 min workout with stretching exercises for the neck, shoulder, arms, back, and core. 

You will need a chair for one of the exercises but, if you do not have one you can also use the wall. 

Some helpful tips for when you are stretching:

  • Always focus on your breathing. 
  • Always deep inhale through your nose and exhale through your mouth.
  • Keep your core engaged and your back straight this will help with the posture. 
  • Always go as far as you can, don't try to push too hard to avoid injuries. 

If you are looking for an arm or upper body workout that you can do before this cool-down stretching exercise; I will leave you the link to 2 routines that I have here in the blog:

Upper body workout with resistance bands
