Skipping Along!

My new book advises dynamic stretching for a warming up.  This includes high knees, bum kicks, leg swings, standing toe-touches, and skipping!  And you should do them in that order.  I had Lisa come outside w/ me for my skipping drills today.  We had so much fun!

I love this type of stretching.  Studies show that injuries are much less likely if you do this before a workout and static stretching afterwards.  (Static stretching is the kind where you hold a stationary stretch for a certain amount of time.)  And this is much more fun to do w/ a 4-year-old!  Peace!
