Enjoy, and always if you have any questions or concerns, please email me at koz.circ@gmail.com - I'm always happy to make changes if they're warranted!

Highlighting the dynamic nature of aerial and circus arts, the cheat-sheet poses questions that can help you reevaluate routines that may have been effective for you in the past but might not serve your current training goals. This approach is applicable across creative, technical, or strength sessions, providing a balanced and effective preparation for the main training session.

In summary, this cheat-sheet revolutionizes warm-up routines for aerialists and circus artists. It advocates for personalized, specific, and efficient warm-ups that align with the individual's goals and the session's focus, using the RPE scale as a guideline for choosing exercises and approaches. This approach ensures a balance between safety, performance improvements, and enjoyment, making it a valuable resource for practitioners at all levels.
