Please read these 'Advice' statements. If you have any doubts whatsoever about your using this exercise program, please call your doctor and get a checkup.
|Use common sense in all exercising. Go only as far in each exercise as is comfortable. Stop if you feel any pain or discomfort!
|For best results, do the exercises of your choice every other day.
|Discuss any doubts or previous ailments (chest or back pain) with a doctor before doing these exercises.
|Relax tight muscles when you exhale during the exercise, not when you inhale.
|Please read all the instructions for each exercise before doing the exercise.
|There is no need to rush or force yourself. Improvement will come.
|Wear light weight, loose fitting clothing. Wait about 2 hours between exercising and eating.
|Do not 'bounce' during any of these movements! Perform stretches slowly and meaningfully.
|Perform the exercises at a steady pace for the best training effect.
|Perform some or all of each exercise. Do not rush.
|Breathe deeply throughout each exercise. Breathe through the nose, if possible.
|Take your resting pulse heart rate before you start exercising. If greater than 15 beats in 10 seconds, stop now and see your doctor about your health!
|Do only the 'short course' or a few of the exercises of your choice the first time.
|Do not be discouraged if you are unable to do all the exercises perfectly.
|If you are going to stretch, then stretch AFTER you do an aerobic exercise rather than before.
