This exercise is inspired by fitness expert Charlene Johnson who created a program called PiYo.

Mobility in your upper and low back is important to be able to create a wide swing arc and full balanced finish.  If you lack flexibility around your spine then you will inevitability make compensations in your swing leading to faults and injuries.
