You need to warm up before working out!
Right now you’re probably saying “well duh”
Seems trivial right?
I’m not talking about pulling my arm across my chest, touching my toes, or walking around for a few minutes while talking to “gym bros”
But really taking the time to warm up.
Proper priming, stretching, and activation of the muscle groups you’re about to use. That’s the goal!
My main lifts are the Snatch and Clean & Jerk.
Very explosive, all inclusive, full body lifts. They can be exhausting, and very frustrating.
Full body lifts, can call for full body warm ups. Some areas may even need more work than others depending on the training volume that’s taken place previously.
That frustration can drasticly be increased if lifts are being missed due to abnormal movement patterns.
I’m often ask what my warm up consist of before lifting each day, its probably more extensive than you might think.
I can tell you there is a major difference on days I don’t have the time to do a proper warm up, against days I MAKE time to ensure I’m ready.
But I promise, if you take the time to look through these, you’ll find some gems that WILL help you!
As always, I’m here to help, if you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask.
Talk to you soon!
