If you promise me that you won’t get a big head, I’d like you to go look in the mirror and repeat after me; “I’m a celebrity and it’s about time that I started acting like one.” Now I’m not suggesting that you should start arriving for your next class in a chauffeur driven limousine, nor am I recommending that you follow these seven steps to becoming a celebrity.

The series is designed for a beginner and it helped me understand exactly what I was getting into.

Rigidity, in the long run, decreases range of motion, which is detrimental to optimal performance. Performance aside, tight muscles affect how you feel in your body on a daily basis.
