Warm-up

Many gym goers use cardio as a method of warming up before physical training. Typically this is done for short periods of time as a way of getting the body ready, blood pumping and oxygen flowing. General warm-ups typically mimic training. They’re not related to the exercises being done and simply used as a way of loosening up. Specific warm-ups on the other hand are those that mimic the activity being done. Think of a cyclist on a trainer before a race.

Examples of warm-ups:

  • Self-myofascial release
  • Static Stretching
  • Treadmill
  • Stationary bicycle
  • Stair Climber
  • Rower
  • Elliptical
  • Hip Swings
  • Prisoner Squats
  • Lunges
  • Tube Walking
  • Trunk Rotation
