Warming up is an essential part of the exercise process, no matter if you decide to take 10 minutes or an hour to get your warm-up routine in.
Below, Associates in Chiropractic Family Health & Wellness Center goes over a few ways to improve your warm-up routine, no matter which stage of the game you’re in.
Focus on Powerful Movements
Try to use your own bodyweight to do sets of body squats, lunges, and mobility movements that engage your hips and joints. You’ll notice an improvement in your workouts and in your recovery.
Keep it Consistent or Switch it Up
It’s beneficial to keep your warm-up routine consistent just to see where you’re at — and getting your body ready before a workout is something that should be done with some level of consistency regardless. However, if you feel yourself getting bored with your routine, it’s fine to switch it up. Do jump rope, various bodyweight exercises, and maybe even work in some light resistance training to ensure you’re getting the variety you need in order to stay engaged.
