Stretches

Maintain every stretch for 10 seconds. Progress the stretches to 30 seconds within the first 10 days. Repeat every stretch twice.
When you do your stretches, you only go into the range until you can feel a slight pull. That is the position that you must hold.

If the stretch becomes painful or uncomfortable, release the intensity of the stretch on the muscle until you only feel a slight pull again.
If you do not feel a stretch after a while, go further through the range until you feel a slight pull again.

Stretch 1
 
Put your left hand behind your back. Tug in your chin and bend your head forward. Tilt your ear towards your right shoulder. Now use your right hand to pull your head forward at a 45º angle towards your right. Repeat the stretch on the opposite side, swopping arms.
