J-J-just jiggle it as Ronnie Barker said

I find that shaking is an excellent way to loosen the body – quite vigorous to get the whole body loose and then soft and small shaking to relax the small muscles and gently open up the joints.

When doing our form this is also a useful technique – a bit like trying to fit a component into a tight spot – like a pin into a hole – we need to jiggle it a bit. When you can’t quite get a joint to move easily or if it seems to stick – try a small shake and see if a little jiggle helps to get things moving the right way.
