General Exercise Instructions

  • Always listen to your body, and adjust movements as needed.
  • Keep your spine neutral by naturally aligning the three curves of the back.
  • Keep your head and neck relaxed and in line with your spine.
  • Keep your chest lifted and your shoulder blades down and back, as if they are pointing toward your back pockets.
  • Inhale and exhale fully and naturally.
  • Keep your core muscles engaged by imagining a wide elastic band encircling your body spanning from just below the ribs down to the pelvic region; lift your pelvic floor into the center of this imaginary band. Allow the core to expand slightly as you breathe normally, but always return to the engaged core.
  • Keep knee and elbow joints soft, even when the leg or arm is straight.
  • Always wear non-slip shoes when working out.
