I guess I just assumed everyone here works out already and is fairly functional.
Not sure if this was mentioned, but flexibility before strength is often sound advice, Blackwolf101 do you have any thoughts on this?
Considering we are stick swingers I am going to go out on a limb here and say shoulder stability is a huge priority. So a few times a week of W/T/ aor Y would go a long way.
You are Right on the Money Peregrine, shoulder stability is important, as well as flexibility. remember that the aim of creating correct postural alignment is to balance the system. The system in question could be the lumbo/pelvic/femoral complex or it could be the shoulder/scapula/thoracic chest wall system. we want to create zero Net force across the joint in question or at least as close to that as we can get, and a lot of people don't realize that flexibility is part of the equation. i like to work on flexibility and strength side by side i recommend this format:
-warm up with light movements similar to those that you will be doing in the actual athletic activity-
-Then stretch performing whatever routine you like but try and get all the major muscle groups-
-perform your technical material next whatever that is, it may be sumbrada drills or sinawalli drill or numerado or light sparring ect... whatever you want that might be considered technical work and requires neuro-motor training-
-Then perform your strength or cardio routine next-
-warm down including a final stretch-
organizing your workouts this way allows you to warm up and stretch adequately to make sure that the muscles and neuro receptors in the joints and muscle tendons are ready to go! it also allows you to work on high level skills before fatigue begins to be a factor.
