Warming up exercises

Warming up exercises  —  Extension  —  Flexion  —  Rotation 

 

Extension:

Erect neutral starting posture: Hold your hands around the back of your neck with the tips of your fingers applying a gently pressure on the muscles on either side of the spine.

Perform 15 repetitions of a slow and controlled movement in the cranio-cervical joint imagining a force in the opposite direction of the fingers pressure in an “eyes-first” modus and feel the muscles contraction.

First look straight ahead, then look upwards, then extend the head and after looking downwards again start the movement back to starting position.

Think of quality in movement rather than intensity.
