WARM UP ROUTINE
One of the most important activities you need to do before training is warming up correctly. Usually we see a lot of people in the gym or in any training just coming in and starting to do weights, crunches and more…do not do this! You always need to warm up.
Why do we need to warm up before training?
Thru the day your muscles have been resting so they are going to be really tight (more if is really cold outside). So if you start training immediately one of you muscles could snap or you can pull a muscle like they say. You need to warm up your body to prepare your joints and muscles for training, it’s going to help your flexibility and prevent injuries and…who likes injuries? NOBODY.
Simple warm up routine:
- Neck roll (Roll your neck to the sides and front.)
- Shoulder stretch (Pull your elbows to the back of your head.)
- 2-4 minutes of jumping rope
- 50 jumping jacks
- 6 lunges on each leg
- 10 hip extensions
- 10 forward leg swings (Try to touch your foot with your hand.)
- 10 side leg swings
