Wellness Wednesday - Bicep Stretch
This standing stretch is a low impact stretch that helps stretch the bicep muscle. The biceps brachii muscle has two heads creating the origin and one insertion. The long head originates at supraglenoid tubercle, while the short head originates from the coracoid process of the scapula.
Both heads converge into one and insert into the radial tuberosity and bicipital aponeurosis into deep fascia on the medial aspect of the forearm. The actions of the biceps brachii are elbow flexion, shoulder flexion and abduction and supination of the radioulnar joint in the forearm.
- Lift your arms straight out to the sides of you.
- Make a thumbs up with both hands and rotate your thumbs down. Hold for 30 seconds.
- Then rotate back up until they are pointing to the back of you.hold for 30 seconds.
- Repeat this 2 more times.
