One of the causes of back pain is through a person leading a sedentary lifestyle. A lot of us lead this sort of life. Whether it’s due to being sat at a desk, or, slouched watching the television our bodies can start complaining. If you do the exercise correctly the upper body relaxer will help to reverse some of those gripes.
Get into position by sitting on the floor with your legs bent. You should be facing away from the vibration plate for this exercise. Lean back against and into the machine, placing your elbows back, onto the vibration plate. Feel free to move around until you find a comfy position to stay in. This will allow for maximum relaxation.
With this exercise you are targeting the trapezius, latissimus dorsi, rhomboids and posterior deltoids.
