The Art of Warming Up Before You Work Out

It’s an age-old adage you’ve probably heard a thousand times: stretch before you work out.

Yet so many people at gyms and with personal trainers ignore this step completely. They hop right onto the treadmill or pick up weights before any of their muscles are primed to perform. Or, they’ll do the stereotypical arm-across-the-chest stretch, not to get loose but to trick themselves into thinking they’re ready to exercise.

The result? Injuries, discouragement, and a lack of weight loss.

So why are stretching and warming up the best things you can do for your body before exercise? It’s all because our muscles need to be eased into the exertion of exercise.

Whether it’s lifting a dumbbell, squatting, playing a sport, or running a marathon, working out requires blood flow and flexibility. A tight body with tight muscles that tries exercise is a recipe for disaster.

We thought warming up was so important that we decided to give it some shine in this week’s blog post. Here are a few of the many ways you can effectively prepare your body for a productive workout. Try these at the gym, on the field, at home, or wherever else you train!
