While sitting in a chair, scoot to the edge of the seat. Spread your legs out and place your feet flat on the floor. Take your right hand and grab your left ankle. Take your left hand and press down in the elbow crease of your right arm. You should feel this stretch in your rhomboid muscle, between your spine and shoulder blade on the right side. Hold the stretch for 15 seconds. Do 2 repetitions on each side.
