ARM STRETCHES—Standing tall in a doorway, I extend both arms and lean forward to stretch my shoulders and open my chest. This helps correct my posture, elongates my arm throw/squeegee stroke and loosens up my arms before/after long periods of install. I also stretch my shoulders by placing one arm across my body/chest and pull- ing on this arm with my opposite arm. It definitely helps relieve tension and keep me flexible. To stretch my arms/back/legs I put my hands behind me, clasp them, then bend at the waist and pull my shoulder blades together while lifting my clasped arms toward my head, letting the gravity pull them. LEG STRETCHES—Standing tall, I bend at my waist and reach for the ground or the back of my calves to grab. I hold this for about 30 to 60 seconds and repeat as much as I like. From this position, I am mindful of the stretch in the back of my legs and back. I am also aware of the gravity pulling on my shoulders and arms and allow them to stretch toward the floor. I then slowly stand tall like in the first position I discussed, paying attention to stacking one spine vertebrae on top of the other until finally standing tall reaching toward the ceiling stretching my whole body long. 54 • March 2019 • S I G N & D I G I T A L G R A P H I C S WRAPS DIGITAL GRAPHICS
