Ex. 3 Ex 1 got the blood down to our hands, and Ex 2 gave our hands that tingly feeling. In this exercise we’re going to do something a little different.
Step 1, We start with our left hand thumb. Open the palm of your left hand and have it facing you, at about a 45° angle, whatever feels natural, then take your right hand, going under your left hand that is facing you, and grab your left hand thumb. The index finger, and thumb of your right hand should be closer to you and your right hand pinky should be furthest away, and your knuckles will be pointing towards your chest in a line.
Step 2, Gently pull your right hand down towards the ground, away from your body until you feel the fleshy part just below your thumb start to stretch. You want to feel a gentle tug, nothing more, then count to five, and let go.
Step 3, Take your index finger, and grab it in the same manner you did your thumb. Again pulling the index finger down towards the ground, away from your body. When you feel that stretchy feeling, stop and count to five, then let go. Carry on and do this for the middle, ring and pinky. Step 4. The first time you do this, your hand may feel a bit funny, so make a fist with your left hand, and squeeze gently, then release to an open palm, and squeeze back to a fist, and open again a few more times. Repeat this whole process for the right hand, using the left hand to stretch with.
Congratulations, you are now ready to go and practice that great Country and Eastern tune you’ve always wanted to get down.
