Pecs

When doing any sort of mobility it is important to make sure your muscles are warm to prevent any further injuries and to get the most out of your mobility routine. 
 

When working through any uncomfortable areas it is important to breathe deeply into the belly. When trying to go deeper into a stretch it is important to synchronize the movements with an exhale.
