Warming Up & Cooling Down The Power Chi Energetics Way

Before you begin Power Chi Energetics exercise, it is important to take a few minutes to warm up your muscles. Doing some light exercises actually warms up your muscles and makes them more flexible. This way, you are less likely to injure yourself during a workout.

The Secret to Warm Up and Cooling Down the Power Chi Energetics Way.

Some warm-ups can include but not limited to stretching and basic calisthenics. Don't start at the pace you hope to keep during your workout; start slowly, building up momentum and energy as you go. Set a stopping time and then move on with the rest of your workout.

When you begin the Power Chi Energetics [PCE] routine, start slow to activate the chi energies and warm up those muscles. Then you can add more reps and speed as you build momentum. This way, you won't risk straining a tendon or muscle-group and your muscles will be more limber and ready to handle the strain of more exertive workout.

While you are doing PCE or any other exercise, you need to breathe. People have the oddest habit of holding their breath during hard physical exertion or times of discomfort/pain. When you exercise, if you hold your breath, you can actually raise your blood pressure and put a larger strain on your heart and blood vessels.

Breathing sounds simple enough, but in order to make it intentional during a workout, breathe in through your nose, taking a long, deep breath. Then exhale through your mouth. Don't reverse it or you will end up hyperventilating if you do it wrong or too quickly. Inhale on expansion of an exercise, and exhale on the contraction of the same.

Sometimes you can do yoga, rhythm work or jump rope in between the PCE routine to help you keep your heart rate up during your workout. Then rest your muscles a little so as to recover and keeping your heart rate at an optimum level. You don't want to lose the benefits of your exertion between rest and recovery because it will defeats the purpose!

After you have completed your PCE workout, you want to allow yourself four or five minutes of light stretching and breathing to relax your body and give you a chance to "Breathe back to normal." Just walk around at a normal pace, then stretch lightly. You wll be amazed at your flexibility and the ability you have to extend arms and legs further than before!

Before you think about exercising or training 6 or 7 days in a row, consider this. When you do Power Chi Energetics training, your muscles are strained. In order for them to become stronger, they need some time to repair themselves. So let your muscles rest a day in between workouts. Do some walking or light aerobics instead on those days and you wll maximize your workout and see results much faster!Collapse this post
