Technique Tuesday: Subtle Stretches

In Tom Tom Magazine Blogroll, Tom Tom Magazine Technique on July 28, 2009 at 3:09 am

If you’re short on time and need a quick stretch before you perform, here are some simple things you can do pretty subtly behind your set.

Hold your arm out, with your palm facing away from you. Hold your fingers with your other hand and gently pull your hand backwards. Know your limits, don’t overdo it.

You can also do this stretch with your hand pointed downwards, palm facing you.

If you can stretch nothing else, stretch your wrists and calves. You can easily stretch your calves by standing with your foot at an angle on a stand or nearby wall. Apply pressure, but again, know your physical limits. The last thing you want is an injury right before a show.

There are tons of stretches you can do if you have more time pre-show, but I’ll get to those later.

If you have anything you want me to cover in Technique Tuesday, tweet your ideas to us at @tomtommag!
