Warm-Up for Better Results

A proper warm-up is essential for injury prevention, greater joint range of motion and a more productive workout. Try these moves before your next sweat session:

 

Foam roll – 5 minutes, or as needed

Cat-cow – 5 repetitions, with your breath

Bird dog – 5 on each side

Body weight squats and/or lunges -10 total

Push-up to side plank – 5 on each side

 

Check out our YouTube video for a demonstration on how to do these exercises!
