Movement of joints (practice)
Preparatory loosening exercises for hands and feet:
Lift fingers and toes and then let them sink, tap them and let them go back:
Partner 1 lies relaxed on the back, Partner 2 taps the fingertips of the hand lifted by them with the index finger. Then they tap on the fingers from above like on a keyboard and then allow them to go back. Then the same with the toes. Partner 2 should do this exercise several times in a row.
