This exercise is aimed at stretching the muscles of the chest and the anterior deltoid muscle of the shoulder. With a sedentary lifestyle or working at a computer, the shoulders drop forward, the chest muscles shorten, which leads to slouching. Exercise W stretching opens the chest, stretches the muscles. This increases the range of movement in the thoracic region, improves posture, reduces tension in the muscles of the back and neck.

Doing this exercise regularly will help improve your quality of life. Since the pectoral muscles are associated with respiratory function, stretching these muscles allows you to relax the chest. Breathing becomes deeper and more effective.
