Iris Sokol goes through a series of quick and easy stretches for your arms and chest.

Ideally, for every hour of sitting, you should get up and walk around the floor where you work.  This helps to break up the muscular tension that can build from static postures.  Another great thing to do for your body is to stretch during the day and Iris Sokol demonstrates easy stretches you can do right at your workstation – and you don't even leave your chair!

Stretching the chest may be one of the best exercises you can do for your body, since most of us spend much of our time hunched forward. This simple series of stretches for your deltoids, forearms, hands, chest and spine will help you stay productive.

If you have any body issues or health problems, please consult with your doctor before you try these, or any other type of exercises.
