Cross-body shoulder stretch

The cross-body shoulder stretch targets increased flexibility in the shoulders. It is a common inclusion in upper-body dynamic warm-ups prior to training or sports, but can also be performed anytime to "limber up" the upper body.


  1. Stretches upper back and rear shoulder
  2. Pairs well with other dynamic warm-ups in a circuit
  3. Great warm-up exercise prior to sports or upper-body training
