sitting rhomboid muscle stretch, position 1sitting rhomboid muscle stretch, position 2.

1. Sit with your feet stretch out in front of you.
2. Bend your right knee and place your right foot on the left/outside of your left knee.
3. With your right hand, grab and hold on to your right ankle & lean back.
4. Holding on to your right ankle, lean back.
5. THE KEY: press your right elbow into your right knee and point/push your right shoulder towards the floor in front of you.

[The key to this stretch is to press your elbow (in this case the right) into the knee and
point the right shoulder towards the floor in front of you. This takes some "fine tuning"
as far as altering how much one flexes prior to twisting, or just twisting without much flex.
You will find that you can target specific areas of the paraspinal musculature from the
lumbar to the upper thoracic.  And once you know how this stretch feels, you can do it seated.]

Remember, if there is any pain, BACK OFF or stop.
