How can I stretch my arms properly?

I have often found the best way for me is to bring one arm over and hold with other hand for 4 counts.

I also reach my arms over head and side to side. I feel it stretches the muscles most.

I am standing and bring one arm to the other side and use my free hand to pull it slightly. Then I do the same to the other arm.

there are several routine that a use for stretching my arms. Class your hands behind your back right at your tailbone and the slowly list them up wall keeping your palms together. When you first start this you may only get an inch away but overtime you will eventually get farther and farther.
take your right arm and places straight out in front of you. Keeping your arm straight bring your arm across your chest with your left hand grasp your elbow and pull it towards your chest. Take your head and look over your right shoulder. all the time while you're doing this make sure that your shoulders are down and not tight up to your earlobes. This should give you a nice shoulder stretch as well as arm and right into the upper back.
Another one of my favorite ones is standing in a doorway take your right arm out to your side now bend your right arm up to 90 degree place that flat armed against the door jamb. Now turn your body leaving that armed against the door jamb and you should notice a nice big stretch across the front of your chest through your shoulder and through your arm. while you're doing this though, make sure that you are not shrugging your shoulders they should be down and relaxed.

I like ashtanga yoga. There’s a move where you put your fingers round your big toe and stretch as far as you can while standing. You don’t have to straighten your knees. Just keep nudging it. Then when you have that. Put your palm under the sole of your feet. The stretch is all angles of arms, Achilles, thighs. Remember if you can’t smile while doing it, your pushing too hard.

I think the question should be how to stretch a specific muscle more than a body part as there are numerous muscles in each body part. So the proper way to stretch would be dependent on the physical ailment you are trying to correct?!

Start standing or sitting tall. Grab one arm above your elbow with your opposite hand, and pull it across your body toward your chest until you feel a stretch in your shoulder.
Make sure to keep your elbow below shoulder height.
Hold for at least 30 seconds and then repeat on the other side.

I reach tall then hold them parallel to the ground and rotiate. 30 times clockwise, 30 counter clockwise. Then I stretch my hands then clench, alternating for a minute.
