Every day, thousands of people in our fitness conscious culture do just what the TV commercials and their doctors tell them: ``Play hard,’’ `` Just do it.’’ They challenge their cardiovascular systems, participate in aerobics, work out with weights and machines, compete at games they last played in their youth, ride bikes, and run races. But they also injure themselves at an alarming rate, losing hours of enjoyment and even employment, as over-exertion and under-preparation take their toll. Calisthenics and stretching, athletic warms familiar to most athletes, take too long, are embarrassing to do in public, and are often improperly done. In some cases, they can do more harm than good. The main exercises, finger-pressure exercises, meridian-stretching exercises and flexibility tests that are described and illustrated in The Acupressure Warm-up can enliven and prepare every major muscle system in the body. In as little as 10 minutes a day, practicing the techniques described offers an easy and effective solution for obtaining maximal enjoyment from sports for fitness and fun.
