Even if you DON’T DO Yoga, these 3 poses or postures will absolutely help you loosen up that TIGHT chest and help your pecs perform and feel better!

Strength Coach, Yoga instructor & Marine Corp Vet Zach Zenios knows how to help you get more out of your body. Range of motion and increased mobility from head to toe is critical in human performance. That is why top athletes spend so much time on warming up properly and getting their body to move through a FULL range of motion.

We are all built differently, no doubt about that. And due to past injuries or traumas to the body, some of these postures or poses may be harder than others. However, you can’t argue the fact that most of us spend too much time in postures that promote poor posture and cause tightness in our shoulders, chests, lower back and neck areas.

Unraveling these areas can take time but if you learn and practice some simple movements like the 3 yoga poses Zach shows you in this video, over time you can undue some of the damage and/or tightness that you’re currently dealing with.

NOTE – the key to all 3 of these chest poses is the breath. If you don’t breath deeply into your belly using your nostrils to help slow your breathing down, your results will not be as noticeable. The breath is KEY to all poses and postures in yoga and ultimately KEY to all sports performance. Focusing on your breath will always lead to a calming / relaxing effect allowing your body to get into better positions.

Best 3 Yoga Poses for Your Tight Chest

Wide Push Up Chest Opener
-Move from Side to Side and hold at each side for 2-5 seconds. Perform this for 30-60 seconds with a nice slow tempo.

Extended Arm Chest to Floor Opener
-Move into this posture and hold for 10-30 seconds at each side. Repeat this as many times as desired.

Floor Scorpian
-the hardest of the 3, this requires more joint mobility. If you are too tight in your chest and shoulder area, stick with doing the first two poses until this becomes an option.
-Hold this posture for 10-30 seconds per side and repeat as many times as you wish.
