Step-by-Step Guide to Perform a Chin Tuck

Chin tucks can be performed while standing or sitting. Here is a simple way to do chin tucks for a beginner:

  • Sit upright and look straight ahead with the ears directly over the shoulders.

  • Place a finger on the chin.

  • Without moving the finger, pull the chin and head straight back until a good stretch is felt at the base of the head and top of the neck. (There should now be some separation between the chin and finger.)

  • Hold for 5 seconds if possible.

  • Bring the chin forward again to the finger.

  • Repeat for a total of 10 times, or as tolerated.
