Dear Mr. Kim,
I just received and saw your recent DVD Ultimate Flexibility (I also own your excellente book Ultimate Flexibility and others), and I have a doubt regarding the workouts you suggest (beginner, moderate and intense). Is it necessary to perform any warm-up before the workouts? Since the workouts have some dynamic and/or joint exercises in the beginning I became with this doubt. If yes, what warm-up you suggest before each exercise taking into account that is a Streching Specific Workout and no previous exercise has been done. Thanks in advance for your attention,
Answer from Sang H. Kim:
Thank you for your inquiry. Whether you need to warm-up before using any of the workouts depends on your physical condition and level of flexibility.
In general, I would recommend using the Beginner workout as a warm-up for the Intermediate and/or Advanced workouts but some people may also need to warm up before the Beginner workout.
Ten to fifteen minutes of gross motor activity like jumping rope, jogging or other light aerobic activity that you are comfortable with is a good way to elevate your body temperature and prepare for more strenuous activity
Best of luck with your flexibility training,
Sang H. Kim
