It’s the BEST way to boost work out performance AND avoid injury.
It’s not particularly sexy, but it works.
I recently got a request to share how I warm up, what I advocate for my fitness boot campers and suggest for my online clients.
Below you’ll see a sample of a warm up:
Here’s the progression where you’ll do 5-10 reps of each and go through this series twice:
- arm circles (both directions)
- bodyweight squat (work into depth)
- squat with overhead arm hold
- prisoner position reverse lunge
- walk out to spider crawl
- modified push ups
- walk in to jumping jacks or step jacks
- squat jumps
Warming up is an essential part of your workout. It should only take 3-5 minutes, but it will help your workout performance tremendously.
If you liked this warm up, you’ll like all my programs. You can see them all on this page.
