Take a broom handle and put it behind your back at shoulder level. Take three twists to your right and then three twists to your left. Do this 10 times to each side. Take a 30-second break and then do it again. Then, shift the broom handle to waist level and do the same routine with the broom handle at that point. Both of these exercises will increase flexibility.
Stand about 18 inches from the wall with your feet shoulder length apart. Raise your hands to shoulder level. Bend your elbows and bring your face close to the wall. Push out and straighten your elbows all the way until you are back in your original position. Do this 15 times, take a 30-second break and repeat the set.
