Shoulder Shrug Exercise

To start, sit in a chair with your feet flat on the floor. Shift your weight slightly forward so you don't round your back. Relax. Keep your ears, shoulders, and hips aligned:

  • Raise both of your shoulders as high as you can, as if you were trying to touch them to your ears. Keep your head and neck still and relaxed.

  • Hold for a count of  5. Release.

  • Repeat  10 times.
