Chapter 16 Warm Up, Before You Play by John Bonica - USA

'Play Your Accordion Without6871_dx.jpgn', book coverJohn Bonica PT CMP NZRPChapter 16 of the book "Play Your Accordion Without Pain" by John Bonica PT CMP NZRP is now released.

This chapter is about protecting your body from potential injury and unnecessary stress while playing or practicing your accordion.
- Warm Up Before You Play ...
- Stretch Before You Squeeze....
addresses in detail with exercise examples, the subject of adequate warm-up preparation prior to practice or playing.

A quote from Chapter 16: So often we blame good old “arther” (arthritis) for our aches and pains in the extremities when really it is merely ligament tightness, poor blood supply to the muscles, and lack of range of motion!

So don’t give up because you feel stiff and achy — get out and stretch and exercise and you may be amazed at how your “arthritis” disappears!

There will be a minimum of 24 chapters, 16 chapters released so far. Special introductory offer, you can purchase the whole book for US$22 (or Euro equivalent) and be sent each chapter by e-mail as it is released.
