After holding this for about 20 seconds, you can pull it down with your lower hand, stretching the upper one in the process. Once this is done, you may swap the hand position and do the same exercise again.
Next, you need to stretch your neck. This you can do by holding your hands by the wrists behind your back. Then, move your shoulder in a downward direction, until you feel your neck stretching. Once this is done, move the other shoulder for the same effect.
