You can do it after you do cardio but that don't stretch a core muscles like stretching cold you pull it out and it snaps need to warmen up make appliable first like I wouldn't want to grab this to full range of motion which on this is a 180 degrees and most of my muscles are very warm now they wanted do it anyway.
