The Core 4 stretches created by Chris Frederick, PT, director of the Stretch to Win Institute, are the foundation for your overall mobility and for most functional movements that are performed on your feet.
These are the key muscles lying within entire myofascial nets covered in the Core 4:
- Glutes in the back power chain of myofascia
- Iliopsoas in the deep front chain
- Quadratus lumborum (QL) in the deep front and lateral chain
- Latissimus dorsi in the back functional power chain
TIP: do this program before activity a little quicker as a dynamic stretch to activate your nerves, muscles and fascia, then do at night a lot slower to aid in recovery and sleep.
