Warm Ups Are Important
Even though my gym is nearby I have been a little tardy in arriving for group sessions the last few visits and didn't get an effective warmup. Not a good habit. During my last session, one of my knees complained loudly. It quickly got surprisingly painful to the point I couldn't put my full weight on the one leg during some of the moves.
Simple, Effective Technique
Thankfully we soon got a brief water break and I had about 20 seconds to perform the "Origin / Insertion Technique' that we teach in our Muscle Tuner™ Specialist program.

I mean I could tell that I exerted myself more than usual, but I had no pain while walking, squatting, touching my toes; moving my arms holding onto things with my hands; my stomach was not even sore! My body did not seize up on me, it was as if I had not skied at all and I was amazed!
