1. Improves Spinal health
Twisting rotates the spine and stretches the muscles of the back, both of which help to retain and restore the body’s natural range of motion. When the muscles and soft tissue that surround the spine are not regularly employed, they can shorten and become stiff. Rotating the torso not only builds strength and flexibility in the back muscles, but also stretches and strengthens the shoulders, hips, neck, and pelvis, all of which prevent stiffness and hardening of the joints.
