Practicing this set of six exercises either three times a week or just before you start a vigorous activity will help increase flexibility, increase blood flow, kickstart the fluid in your joints to flow smoothly and relax your muscles, tendons and ligaments, making them more flexible and reducing strain and tension. The end result is a well-prepared body and reduced risk of injury.
Note: For #1 and #4 below, besides proper form, also focus on your technique.
