Not warmed Up Properly?
To get the most out of your training session, your pre workout routine needs to involve two things: some type of low to moderate intensity cardio activity to raise body temperature (about 10 minutes), followed by a slightly more intense warm up of dynamic stretching and muscle activation focusing on the body parts you will be training.
Perform the following five exercises as a circuit, completing two to three rounds total.
- Jumping jacks – 25 reps
- Arm Circles – 15 reps forward and 15 reps backwards
- Side Lunge – 10 reps per side
- Leg Swing – 10 reps swinging front to back, 10 reps swinging side to side.
- Superman – 10 reps performed slowly, squeezing the glutes and back muscles at the top for one to two seconds.
