Warming up is essential for preventing injuries and getting the most
out of your martial arts training. This how-to will guide you through a
safe and effective warm up that can be used in conjunction with any
other training regimen.Difficulty: AverageTime Required: 15 minutes 1. Neck Rotations Slowly rotate the neck from shoulder to shoulder in a circular motion. Repeat 10 times in each direction. 2. Shoulder Rotations Slowly rotate or "shrug" your shoulders 10 times forward and 10 times backward. 3. Arm Circles
Extend the arms out to the side at shoulder level. Circle the arms
forward and backwards 10 times using small circles. Then repeat using
larger circles. Be sure not to drop the arms below chest level while
circling. 4. Wrist Rotations Rotate the wrists 10 times inward and 10 times outwards. 5. Waist Rotations
Bend deeply at the waist and rotate in a full circle. Be sure to rotate
the waist as opposed to the hips. You should feel a stretch in the
waist and lower back. 6. Knee Rotations
Place your hand on your thighs above your knees, not on the knees
themselves. Rotate slowly and deeply 10 times each direction. 7. Ankle Rotations
Hold on to a wall or chair, lift your leg about 6 inches off the floor
and rotate each ankle 10 times inward and 10 times outward. 8. Seated Stretch
Sit with your legs spread as wide apart as you feel comfortable. Lean
out towards each leg, and the center. Remember to keep the back
straight. A good way to remember this is to try to touch your chin to
your knee or shin instead of your forehead to your thigh. Go down
slowly and exhale, holding for at least 10 seconds each side. Remember
not to bounce or move too quickly. Use smooth, slow movements.Tips: 1.
Remember to always move slowly and smoothly. Using quick, jerky
movements increases your chances of injury and doesn't stretch you as
effectively. 2. Always try to relax. Tensing up while stretching eliminates the effectiveness of the stretch. 3. Increase the number of repetitions as you progress.
