The bully stretch is great for your arms and torso.
Attach a band to a secure location, such as a pole or a higher spot, and then hook your shoulder onto it. Lean into the stretch by pulling your shoulder down and back and leading with the opposing leg.
The next one is the frog pose, which is also used in yoga and is a great hip opener.
Place your hands underneath your shoulders and your knees below your hips in a tabletop position. Press back towards your legs.
This exercise works your core and legs. It also relaxes you and relieves physical tension in your body after climbing.
The runner's lunge is the most well-known of these three stretching exercises.
This excellent stretch targets the hamstrings, hip flexors, inner thighs, and quadriceps.
With a slight movement change, you can also stretch your calves.
These three stretches are great for climbers or anyone, but they shouldn't be used exclusively.
It is better to do a full-body stretch after your workout.
