Tight Obliques can contribute to back pain and postural misalignment, lack of stretching, too much/unbalanced chest/back training especially using solely machines or isolation exercises, plus general immobility can cause tightness in this area.
This lying oblique stretch is easy to for the time that is necessary to develop flexibility in this area and quite relaxing. We advise people to hold for 30sec’s up to 3 mins dependant on requirement. (this will produce great benefits if done directly before sleep every night until you have optimum oblique flexibility)
Concentrate on breathing out and become aware of your muscles relaxing each time you exhale
