Cheryl Cullina: Hi! My name is Cheryl Cullina and we are here to talk about a non-contact cardio kick box class. Before you start any exercise program, it's important to warm up, do a few dynamic stretches.

Let's get started with some examples of those. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced exerciser, let's get started by warming up a bit. A step touch is always a good move, warms up the lower body rolling the shoulders back, lifting the chest, and perhaps a squat tap with a reach in the arms. You always want to include your upper body, as you warm up, and as you become warmer, a twist side-to-side lengthens out your back. Perhaps we could take this to heel digs. Sitting low into your seat, and back into the heels, and then wide again, and into a few stretches. Inner thighs here, maybe a rotation, a slight rotation as you warm up through the mid section, a calf raise and a stretch out through the calf, lifting through the arms, reaching back.

It's important to do both sides, one side then the other, get them both done. That's our warm up for a cardio kick box class. Your warm up and your dynamic stretching should continue for five to ten minutes. Let's move on.
