Upper arms and biceps


 1. Hold stick behind your back, palms down. Slowly raise your arms upwards. Stop when you feel a stretch.


2. Slowly raise your arms upwards until you feel a stretch.

Hamstrings, glutes and shoulders


 1. Hold the stick behind your back and then wrap your elbows around the stick.


 2. Keep your back straight, engage your midsection and bend forward at the hips. Feel the stretch, hold for 30 and return.
