Purpose: This exercise is a good way to set your head and neck position before doing many of the neck, shoulder, and upper back exercises. It helps to counteract forward head posture by stretching the muscles at the back of the skull and to strengthen the deep neck flexors.
Instructions: Sit or stand up tall, and tuck your chin back, like you're making a double chin. Hold for a few seconds and release, for about 10 times.
Common Errors: Tilting your head down - this is not a chin to chest movement! Make sure your head goes back, not down.
