It’s the last week of the 12 Minute Athlete June Flexibility Challenge!
For our final week, we’re focusing on some often-forgotten areas to stretch: the chest, back, and core.
You’ve probably heard of these muscle groups being paired up in strengthening workouts…
Most of us don’t dedicate these kinds of stretches into our regular fitness routine.
But we should! Because the chest, back, and core are all MUSCLES.
That means that when we strengthen them, we shorten them. And it’s important to lengthen them back out if we want to keep using them to their full capacity.
So let’s give these muscle groups some TLC with the following exercises; do this routine at least three times per week in addition to your regular workouts to build a more flexible chest, back, and core.
It’s the last week – let’s see those progress posts! Use the tags @12minuteathlete and #12MAflexibility on our Facebook Group and Instagram for a chance to win my favorite foam roller and a signed copy of the 12 Minute Athlete book!
