Posted:OK, now what kind of exercises can 1 do to make 1self more flexible for poiing?Yeah, yeah, poiing itself would obviously be the best alternative but for those times in front of the pc at work or when u're inside in front of the TV or something. I'm especially thinking of exercises to makes 1's wrists more supple. In other words exercises like in eg

Posted:Wrinst exercises..I don't know besides practicing moves individually over and over again with both arms to get your arms able to do moves equally...ONe thing to improve your poi skills, is work on strething your upper/middle back/chest muscles constantly...they are the key to making twirling graceful, because it is dancing basically, and the greatest dancers are the ones that make it look soo easy...I think the key is to try and syncronize your shoulder/back movements with your wrists, without your arms wailing around--bad explanation--well, in front of the PC, shoulder rolls forward and backwords, follow the wave to your wrists, and FEEL IT BABY!hope it helps,love and light,Sacha

Posted:i think sacha summed up the most common "wrist exercise" (especially for the blokes, anyway), when she said to "FEEL IT BABY!". HAHAHAHAHAHA.wrist/hand stretches i've picked up in wrestling in martial arts include one where you turn your right palm toward your face, grab your right wrist with your left hand(underhand), place your left thumb on the back of your right hand, and push it up and away. it twists your right wrist and stretches your forearms pretty good as well. switch sides, do it again.another one is just to place your fingers flat on a tabletop, and press your arms straight down, thereby pulling your hand back and up. thats all i got.-heph

Posted:The two wrist excercises you'll see people doing at the gym:1. Wrist curls: grab a barbell, sit on a bench, perch your forearms on your thighs and do curls with just your wrists2. Wrist twists: this involves a special apparatus, basically a stick with some rope attached to the middle. At the other end of the rope is a fixture for attaching a weight plate. You hang a plate on the rope, grasp the stick in both hands, and twist it to wind up the rope. Then twist the other way to gradually unwind it. This is harder than it sounds.

Posted:Khundalini (sp?) Yoga is phenominal!!!!!Belly dancing makes you aware of muscles you never knew you had.Simple stretches off of any warm up video help.I also do a bit of free weight strength training. I also want to add, I saw someone listed strengthening back, shoulders, arms, etc. To compliment that also strengthen your abdominals. Your abdominals actually support a great deal of your center of gravity...which is so important in the fluid motion we all strive for. Strong abdominals also help your posture and your ability to lean farther back and forward. Isolation stretches (stretching your rib cage without moving your hips or shoulders much, for example) are fantastic warm ups and also help breathing.Cheers!------------------Pele Higher, higher burning fire...making music like a choir...

Posted:I use chan-ssu chi gung to warm up for spinning. There's a couple exercise that you can use for wrist flexibility and hand strength that you can do between typing or while watching TV that you may find useful. 1) Wrist Circles: Start with an arms/hands/fingers extended, sort of like typing posture not stiff zombee-like. Rotate fully at wrists. Do circles inward for a couple dozen rotations, then circles outward. 2) Tiger's Paw: Same arms/hand/fingers posture as last. Bend fingers at outer two knuckles. Knuckles where fingers meet the hand should remain unbent. Again, a couple dozen time of bend release. 2) Tiger's Mouth: Same posture but start with the fingers bent as the second position of Tiger's Paw. Go from that position to fists. Again, bend and release. But keep the two-knuckle bent position when you release.Hope this helps. Please let me know if I'm not making sense. Diana
