In Rock Climbing part of the Physio / rehab that is really important to do for the spine is improving your upper back or thoracic spine mobility. You need this for large cross over or cross under maneuvers of the hands and sometimes the feet.

To improve your upper back mobility try doing this exercise two times per day and also at the start of every climbing warm up session. Start in 4 point position on your hands and the balls of your feet. Bring your left foot forward and steady yourself on the ball of your foot.

Then cross under all the way with your right hand and arm and then bring it back out and reach up and over. Repeat this for 10 reps on each side doing 3 sets.
