Next, the first stretch this guy does:

Then I do this stretch, though one arm at a time:

finish with up the back:

That is four stretches, done at least six times a week, each stretch held for at least thirty seconds.

The big difference? I wake up pain free in the mornings.

I put this together from the book below, which will take you from beginning to advanced and also provides exercises to do that really make a difference.
