    A blend of static and dynamic stretches.

    Atsushi Kanno

    Stretch Exercise Consultant

    At Jubilo Iwata, before training and games, we always warm up with stretching exercises.
    Warmup exercises prepare the body physically, of course, but emotionally, too, they can increase motivation and help unlock the athlete's own unlimited potential.
    I proposed Rev Stretch based on the same concepts as Jubilo Iwata warmup exercises. One feature of these is that they interpose dynamic stretches for relaxing muscles and rotating joints between conventional static stretches. Relaxing between stretching makes the stretches more effective. Dynamic stretches also help boost circulation and raise body temperature.
    Do Rev Stretch exercises at the beginning of the day to get your blood moving and start your work with excitement and gusto.

  • The uplifting note in the end will give a powerful start to send you out into the day

    Koichi Tsurusaki

    Composer, Arranger and Lyricist

    My name is Koichi Tsurusaki – a composer, arranger and lyricist at Yamaha Music Publishing, Inc. The music for “Rev Stretch” which I supervised the production, is intended to serve as an engine to get a kick start of a new day thorough stretching exercise before people go to work in the morning. The songs were written with an idea to end with soaring excitement. The sound of the strings and piano creates an image of a beginning of the new day, which is refreshing yet forceful. I sincerely hope that my music, together with the stretching exercise, will give you the energy to get you through a day.

  • Persistence pays off with even greater refreshment.

    Yuji Ikegaya, PhD

    Commentary

    These stretches has been designed based on the progressive muscle relaxation method developed by American physician Edmund Jacobson. This method leads the body to relaxation through repeated tension and relaxation of the muscles, with its effectiveness verified by numerous academic studies. In the USA it enjoys a history of some hundred years, and is officially listed as a stress-reduction technique in the "mental healthcare" items announced by Japan's Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science, and Technology. Doing them daily, a little at a time, is certain to heighten their refreshing effect.

  • I feel lighter and I can tell my back is more limber.

    Eriko Hamada

    Video Exercise Demonstrator

    Rev Stretch is made up of simple movements, like the kind everyone did when they were small. After doing Rev Stretch my whole body feel refreshed and lighter, and my back feels more limber, as if I've grown a bit taller.
    I always make a point of doing some kind of physical exercise in the morning, but even if you don't have much time to exercise, doing Rev Stretch can help you start the day off feeling great. And if you think about what parts of the body you're stretching, you might enjoy even better effects! Give it a try!

  • A Way to Get Ready for the "Release" That Work Is

    Miyuki Nakai

    Music Therapy Adviser

    Music therapy, fundamentally, is planned to meet individual needs, so changing and soothing an unspecified large number of people at one time is quite a difficult thing to do. People get to the workplace in the morning in a wide range of different states, you see. But even so, they all have the same goal of starting work.
    Whether for individuals or groups, of the five kinds of functions of music that I deliberately make daily use of in music treatment -- stimulation, uplift, release, calming, and incitement -- in the musical production for Rev Stretch, I used the four functions other than "release."
    I did this to set the stage for the "release" embodied by work that follows after. Just relax, concentrate on the music, let your body go, and do the exercises.
