DYNAMIC WARM-UP DRILLS
Are you sitting at a computer all day? Are you driving to and from work and workouts? That is a lot of sitting in the day. As a result we need to get the body back to neutral posture before exercising (Opening the hips)!
A dynamic warm-up is a series of walking lunges followed by a series of leg swings prior to any exercise. A lunge, although inherently a strength exercise, is a terrific stimulus to activate all the muscle of the leg prior to working out.
A lunge and leg swing routine is a great way to engage the quads, hamstrings, adductors, glutes, hip flexors, and calves facilitating proper mechanics and preventing injury. The routine also warms the muscles and raises your heart rate so you are mentally ready to run!
