Could you give more details why you chose the specific power exercises on your sun style DVDs? On the DVD you mentioned that they fit into the tai ji quan parameters. I noticed a lot of them involve sinking and then rebounding.
What benefits does exercise # 5, Shen fa, have on the body?
Thanks in advance.
The sun tai ji exercises are the way I warm up for every workout. People always look at me funny while they sit there stretching out their hamstrings for 25 minutes. I was doing the body shaking and my friend joked about me flying away.
I chose that set because it not only serves as a good warm up for activity, it teaches the practitioner to generate force with correct posture from the "inside," through the most common ranges of motion.
