Warmups For Your Workout

Posted Jan 27 2010 7:58pm

I CRINGE every time I see some clown stroll into the gym cold off the street and start loading up the bar without completing a proper warmup.

Coincidentally it seems the same people who neglect this important part of their workout are the same people complaining about shoulder pain or back pain and wrap themselves up like a mummy before their workout with wrist wrapselbow wrapsknee wraps and the infamous weight lifting belt for EVERY exercise so they can manage to get through their workout.

Even though I don’t recommend the “old school” warmups of walking on a treadmill for 5 minutes and then static stretching before your workout(which I will explain in a future post) it is still a lot better than doing nothing at all!

What I do recommend is a Dynamic Warm-Up before you workoutso here is my current warmup I do before EVERY Dad Fitness workout to enhance muscular activation and increase joint mobility.
