If you carry your stress between your shoulder blades like I do, this move may feel tweaky and, well, unpleasant for the first two reps or so. By the fifth, though, I always feel wrung out -- and by the 10th, the space between my shoulder blades feels wide open (and I'm less snarly).
Lie facedown on the floor with your palms near your chest.
Lift your head, shoulders, and chest off the floor, pulling your shoulder blades down and together. Stay here for two counts and then lower down.
Repeat 8-10 times. (Need more? Try lifting your thighs and hips off the floor.)
