The final movement of this series is perfect for if you need to improve your shoulder and T-spine mobility, or recover from a day spent hunched over a desk. You will also open the hips, so if you have been sat down all day this is going to help a lot.
Reverse Tabletops (Spend 2-4 minutes on this or perform 5 x 3-5 )
This movement is fantastic to open up the chest and shoulders, work in to shoulder extension (often neglected) and rotation as well as open the front of the body whilst strengthening the back of the body.
Variation one is a shoulder extension stretch, Variation 2 is a reverse tabletop and variation 3 is a progression to table top reaches. Try any of these variations or all of them. In my opinion this is one of the best movements to counteract hunched shoulders and tension in your chest and shoulders. I recommend warming up your wrists for a few minutes prior to this and when in your reverse table top, grip in to the ground with your fingers rather than sinking in to your wrists.
