Yoga to Open Up Tight and Tense Shoulders - What do push-ups, cycling, and sitting hunched over a computer all have in common? Tight and tense shoulders. Aside from scheduling an appointment with a massage therapist, you can hop on a mat and show this area some love with this chest- and shoulder-opening yoga sequence. Move through all 11 postures on the right side, and then repeat on the left.
Tone Your Whole Bod With a Wall: Stand with right side to wall, feet together, left arm fully extended at shoulder height with hand on wall. Engage abs and slowly bend left elbow 90 degrees (as shown). Pause; return to start for 1 rep. Do 20 reps. Switch sides; repeat. Works triceps, obliques #SelfMagazine
