Exercise ball chest stretch

The exercise ball chest stretch is a simple stretch for the pectoral muscles that can be made more dynamic with help from a medicine ball. It can work in a dynamic warm-up, paired with movements in a workout, or as part of a cool-down or recovery strategy. If the stretch causes pain in the front of your shoulder, dial back the intensity or choose another chest stretch.


  1. Stretches the pec major and pec minor muscles
  2. Rolling on the ball provides a gentle dynamic component to the stretch
  3. Free arm can help control intensity of the stretch
