Most people are aware that fitness and exercise are activities that should be done daily to contribute to overall health and well-being. But did you know that it’s also important for musicians to get exercise?
As a musician, making music might often mean your body gets twisted into unnatural positions for long periods of time. Various exercises can help you strengthen and stretch your body to help you maintain tip-top musical shape.
For example, arm strengthening exercises are perfect for percussionists, pianists, and the like since they will make playing even easier! Check out the infographic below from TakeLessons for more fitness ideas you can benefit from, regardless of what instrument you may play.
