One of the most important aspects of training we stress at the Alpha Female Project, near Banksmeadow, is that warming-up is vital! If you don’t include an adequate warm-up exercise routine into your training sessions you are putting your body at a far greater risk of injury.
Lifting heavy without giving your muscles the chance to loosen up is seriously one of the worst things you can do! I cringe every time I see people walk into the gym and go straight into a high intensity exercise routine. Let me show you an easy warm-up routine that you can use all the time, that will help you avoid injury.
Use this warm-up exercise routine anywhere
Here’s the simple warm-up exercise routine we use at Mojo Strength. No equipment necessary, so you can do this anywhere – No excuses!
- Body weight squats x 10
- Pushups x 10
- Reverse lunges x 10, each leg
- Plank x 30 seconds
- Bear crawl x 30 metres
- Crab crawl x 30 metres
- Burpees x 10
- Forward jog x 30metres
- Back peddle x 30 metres
- Butt kicks x 30 metres
- High knees x 30 metres
- Power skips forward x 30 metres
- Power skips backward x 30 metres (test your coordination!)
- Side shuffles x 30 metres each way and your ready to go.
This will get your heart racing and loosen you up
The exercises are done back to back no rest. It shouldn’t take more than 10 minutes, but will get you ready for anything!!
