Twist + Bend

This sequence focuses on twists and sidebends that will be great to include in your training—especially if you're trying to get sideways.

If you notice that you’re holding your breath when you put your lungs and ribcage in uncomfortable positions, see if you can be conscious of this and try to breathe more normally.

PRIMARY MUSCLES STRETCHED
  • Abs, obliques and lower back.
  • Neck and shoulders.
  • Calves and hamstrings.
  • IT Band and TFL.
KEY POSES
EQUIPMENT
TIMING
  • This is a great warm up sequence.
TIP
  • Initiate twists from the base of your spine and allow the movement to unwind all the way up to your neck like a spiral staircase.
