Day 5 (Week 7) – Table Tennis Fitness

To make way for the weekend, we will be finishing off with a great little stretch for the deltoids in our shoulder + triceps!

To perform this exercise, simply bring one arm overhead so that your hand is resting between the shoulder blades. Your hand should be loose and relaxed. Then, bring your opposite arm to rest on your elbow, and pull gently with the arm you are stretching (don’t pull on the elbow!)

Fitness Goal: aim to perform this stretch for 20-30 seconds each side.

Tip: make sure you don’t pull too hard when performing this exercise as you don’t want to ‘force it’ – if you do, you could potentially overstretch and cause pain or injury to your muscles, and we obviously don’t want that.
