The Warm-Up

Hello, dears!

I´ve just found a new video editing app that I think you may like too. It´s Lumen5 and turns your blog post into videos with no effort and lots of fun. You enter the link you want to convert and they find related images and animations. You choose what you like, edit a little bit, add your logo, find music, and ready to download and share!

I started with one of my oldest articles. Never forget the importance of warming up before a workout, match or competition. Btw, do you want to try this app? Visit Lumen5.com 🙂

Side Leg Swings

This exercise warms up and stretches the hip flexors, hip extensors, hip adductors, and hip abductors.

Facing a wall or other support, brace the body with both arms outstretched at shoulder level. Stand upright, keeping the back straight. Keep the body stable and balanced. A slight forward lean is okay during Side Leg Swings, but avoid bending forward at the waist or rounding the back.

Swing one leg to the side of the body, extending to a comfortable height.

Swing the leg back, crossing in front of the body.

Increase the range of motion gradually until reaching the maximum comfortable height.

Swing the legs fluidly without bouncy or jerky actions.

While both legs should be fairly straight, the knees shouldn’t be locked.

Cat-Cow

The cat dog exercise is perfect for helping you stretch your back, torso, and neck. Also known as Marjariasana or Cat Pose, makes an ideal first exercise to warm-up.

WARNING: If you have a neck injury, consult your doctor. At least, keep the head in line with the torso.

Come to a hands and knees position. Make sure your knees are below your hips and your wrists, elbows, and shoulders are in line and perpendicular to the floor. Center your head in a neutral position, eyes looking at the floor.

As you inhale, raise your chin and tilt your head back, push your navel downwards and raise your tailbone.

As you exhale, drop your chin to your chest and make round your back as much as you can.
