(1) Do a few lat stretches (arms over head bent at the elbow -- reach across with one hand to the opposite elbow and gently pull, slightly bending away sideways towards the side of the arm that you are reaching with). Repeat, gradually increasing the pull each time.
(2) Extend one arm over your head, elbow bent, with the elbow pointed towards the ceiling and your hand reaching straight down thee back of your neck. Take your other hand and gently pull down on your elbow. Repeat, gradually increasing the pull each time.
Wouldn't the setup be more important than trying to stretch to reach the valve? If the setup is right, then reaching the valve would be no problem, right? At what height should the valve be relative to the backplate or the wing?
