You can use this warm-up before any exercise session (running, weights, Hellfire, etc). I always start my workouts with something like this one, and I’ve built them into the Hellfire Workout schedule — mostly to keep things fresh. I like doing the same workouts as much as the next person, but change is good. Keeps things fresh, and it helps to work different muscle groups.
This warm-up uses 5 different exercises/moves, each for 30 seconds. Then, you repeat the moves for a 2nd time … and then a 3rd time. So, it’s a 7 minute 30 second warm-up, followed by a short dynamic stretch routine.
I assure you that this warm up will get your body warm, your muscles prepared, and your joints ready for whatever workout that you take on!
Here are the moves for the warm-up. If you aren’t sure of how to do one, or if you would like to learn the modifications, click on the pic below for the video. You can even play the video, and do the warm up along with me. It’s like being in a session or class with me at the studio!
