A couple things to remember as we practice through Old Joe Clark

  • Begin the practice session with a warm up of at least 5 minutes. Warm up routines should include: stretching, the 1 2 3 4 exercise, more streching and good breathing cycles.
  • Take your time and don’t feel rushed. You deserve it. This will continue to pay dividends in the years to come.
  • It is recommended to practice for 15 minutes then take a short break for some more stretching.
  • If you see a sasquatch, take a break from practice and run. Actually, it is a good idea to get up and move around at regular intervals if you plan on practicing for more than an hour at a time. When you come back to your practice, you will be even more ready to learn.
  • Even though things may seem difficult at first, carry on because things always get better. Every repetition helps to program our muscle tissue. That muscle tissue will eventually “remember” what to do!
  • Practice evenly and without disruption. Try and maintain a well-lighted place that is set up for learning. Use nice furniture too (if it is available to you).
