Stretching in different sequence than the book suggests?

Postby lrodptl » Sat Jan 05, 2008 11:08 pm

Is it okay to do back stretches out of sequence? For instance,after the first stretch on the floor I stay on the floor and complete the other floor stretches before doing the standing and sitting stretches. This is out of order per the book but made sense for me.

Yes, you can do the exercises in any order that works for you. I often group the exercises similarly to how you describe just for convenience.

My only "pattern" is that I always do the easiest ones first since they serve as warm-ups for the more difficult or complicated ones.
