This program may not be the best fit for you as it is a generic program and not tailored to you or a specific activity. Please take this into consideration when starting this program.
If you are unsure about starting a new exercise program or have health conditions that will impact your exercise, please consult your doctor or preferred health professional before starting this program.
Different people require different movements. If something doesn’t feel right, stop the exercise and evaluate. If you experience pain, then remove the exercise from the workout until you can see a physiotherapist to discuss this with you. If you experience discomfort or tightness, modify the exercise and monitor if you are able to improve these feelings over the course of the program. Consult with a health professional if you have any concerns.
