I’ve gotten a few people asking me lately about what I like to do and what I have my athletes do for a warmup before they train. So I decided it would be a good idea to share that with you. If you have ever trained w/ me before, you know how much emphasis I put on our warmup. When people ask me why we should warm up, the analogy I usually use is:
“Well, you wouldn’t just start your car, floor it, and speed out the driveway right?”
Even though some of you crazy Arizona drivers may have answered yes to that question, you get the point. A comprehensive and progressive warmup routine is crucial….here’s part 1 of mine.
