    Hi. I'm Michelle Ryon, a Certified Personal Trainer and I am showing you how to do some exercises and stretches that you can do at the office.

    Right now, I am going to show you how to stretch you forearm, your tricep, and also your neck. So, for the forearm, if you are doing a lot of computer work and probably get tied through the wrist, so just extend the arm forward, palm up and we are going to gently pull back on the fingertips. So, you're going to want to do with both arms, hold each arm 20 to 30 second and then release.

    For the triceps, we are going to bring the arm up over head, elbow in, we are going to reach around with the opposite arm, gently press right below your elbow, dont push right on the elbow and press back and up. You can lean a little bit to the side to get a little deeper stretch and you should feel stretch right through the tricep. Again, you want to make sure you do both sides, holding it 20 to 30 seconds and then release.

    Now, for our neck, we are going to reach over the head, we are going to tip the head to the side, you can extend the opposite arm and just press gently with your top hand and let all the tension of the neck down into the shoulder. And then do the other side. So, if you are sitting for long periods at a time, you all can do all these stretches as often as you need them, every hour, every few hours, and the more stretching you do, the better. So, thats how to stretch your forearm, your tricep and your neck and now, I am going to show you how to stretch your hamstring and hip flexors.
