We’ve all been “warming up” since grade school. Sometimes, it was arm circles in phys. ed., or running laps before football practice.
Just like everything else, you can warm up a right way or a the wrong way.
The videos below show each exercise in my favorite dynamic stretching warm-up. This routine has helped 100’s of clients lay the foundation for their fitness journey.
Video 1 will explain why dynamic stretching > static stretching to warm up for a workout. The “why”.
The rest are short demo clips of each exercise.
This is how I would spend a big portion of my first session with any personal training client.
