There is simply no replacement for good warm ups and recovery.
Stretches both dynamic and static have their place when priming your body before training.
Easier said than done right?
I’m guilty of NOT doing any post training recovery, in which I pay for dearly. I really need to practice more of what I preach with post training recovery…
Some days it takes me longer to warm up than it does to complete my training.
Between Jiu Jitsu and weightlifting, my joints and certain muscle groups really take some punishment, Especially my hands and wrist.
Some days my wrist start off so stiff I can’t grip the barbell or a gi, nothing that can’t be fixed. Without proper warm up I’d never be able to train.
Needless to say, I’ve found what works for me.
Full disclosure, this is just for the wrist primer. This does not replace the fact the connective tissue with forearm, triceps, shoulder, and lats needs work.
But this does help with flexion of the wrist and warms up for before training. It elevates pressure and tightness in the wrist, allowing for better movement in training.
More so by the time I’m finished I’ve removed a lot of the pain I was experiencing prior to training.
