25 Best Exercises For People Over 40

23. Trap Stretch

Performing this stretch would improve your neck’s posture and will help in loosening up your tight trapezius muscle.

How do you perform this exercise?

Sit keeping your back straight, feet pointing toward your front, and hips placed neutrally. Raise any one of your hands over your head and try pulling the head gently in the direction of your shoulder. Make sure that you don’t pull the head as that might leave you badly injured. Use your hand in a way so that it never tries to pull your head directly; it should only assist gravity. Hold the position for 30 to 60 seconds. Initially, performing the exercise once would be enough. However, after practicing trap stretch for a few weeks, you should try performing three repetitions of the exercise.
