These stretches help improve mobility in your spine and around your ribcage.
When you have stiffness around your ribcage and in your spine then this can impact how well all of the core muscles function. If you think about it whenever you do a workout or exercise activity it is always advised to include a stretching routine regularly to prevent pains from developing and optimise body function.
This is following the same concept by adding in these stretches to your Core Workouts.
We advise practicing 2 or 3 of the stretches below before you start one of the Core Workouts.
