A fantastic daily exercise for those of you that needs to loosen up those tight muscles and stiff joints. Start the exercise by standing on all fours lower your back slowly towards the floor while raising your neck carefully. Then shoot your spine up in a controlled movement while flexing your neck towards your chest. Repeat the exercise for 8-10 repetitions over 3-4 sets.
