  2. Leave the arm at you side down and swing the arm pointed up back & down.
  3. Make a circle with the arm in motion, keeping it close to the side of your head as you swing it back.
  4. Walk with the proper lower leg motion of race walking.
  5. Perform this exercise for 30 yards.

Please consult your doctor before trying any of these stretches.
Beginner walkers may find them too stressful.
