Playing the drums is very physical, and keeping up health and fitness are paramount to being able to perform well. Here are some fitness tips for drummers
- Warm up and stretch – like any other physically strenuous activity, it’s best practice to prepare the body. Stretch out the biceps, triceps and roll the wrists to prepare them for a session.
- Posture – sitting well will enable drummers to be able to progress healthily on their instrument. Don’t slouch, keep the shoulders rolled back and down.
- Cardio – drumming can be extremely strenuous so engaging in any light cardiovascular exercise will benefit your playing, such as walking, cycling or swimming regularly.
