I am wondering about the many uses of "if". These are the ones I know about:

Zero General truths Simple present Simple present Type 1 A possible condition and its probable result Simple present Simple future Type 2 A hypothetical condition and its probable result Simple past Present conditional or Present continuous conditional Type 3 An unreal past condition and its probable result in the past Past perfect Perfect conditional Mixed type An unreal past condition and its probable result in the present Past perfect Present contditional

What type of "if" is used in the following sentence:

"If you feel a little bit stiff (doing this yoga exercise) just don’t care about it!"

This doesn´t seem to fit into any category.

The then part of an if-then doesn't always have to be a result. It can be used to qualify a command or request for action.

If the dog is there, then your couch is torn up (Result).

If the dog is there, please take him outside (Request).
