These upper body dynamic exercises are great for the upper back, shoulders, and neck.

For this routine, you will not need any equipment.

Let’s begin with a quick 2 minute warm up to help get the muscles loose and ready to go. Shoulder circles, arm circles, shoulder squeezes, and trunk rotation in sitting will help the muscles get ready for the routine.

Starting off with seated Ts, arms above head side to side, and arms up with twist will help activate the muscles around the neck to improve stability and decrease pain.

Next, in standing trunk rotation, modified jumping jacks, and dynamic arms across the body will work all the muscles around the shoulder and help increase stability.

Finally, deep breathing with arm movements are great to work the upper body and the shoulder area as well as opening up the chest with deep breathing.

Congratulations on finishing Day 3 of the Moderate Whole Body Wellness Challenge. See you back here for Day 4!
