"...I've been practicing the Five Tibetans since Sept. 2002. Since then this routine is usually an envigorating start to my day. But if I'm unable to do it first thing in the morning it's quite easy to fit in at any other time. No need for a gym and independent of the weather.
Not being a young person I initially had my doubts wether I could reach that magic number. By increasing the number of movements slowly over several weeks I had no problem reaching 21 of each and I find them easy to do. I also feel that breathing in and out during each movement is important for the supply of energy. It makes lasting the distance easier.
My wrists used to hurt in the beginning but got stronger very quickly. Arm and tummy muscles are now nice and firm, too. And I find that keeping my weight down is not a problem anymore. So, it's really well worth spending 15 minutes each day. The Five Tibetans have become so much part of my routine that I can't imagine not doing them any more."...
