Lying on your back with your legs bent and your feet on the floor, hold your arms up in front of you, palms together. Take a weight in each hand (if you don't have any weights, a tin of beans works well!). Move your arms outwards and down, away from your body. Stop when your hands are a few centimeters from the floor.

Breathe in as you lower your arms and breathe out to raise them.

Variation: Lie on a bench to get a better stretch.
