Your warmup routine can make or break your workout. A properly designed warmup routine increases body temperature, range of motion, and activates your central nervous system. Furthermore, with the right drills, it can even help relieve muscle aches and pains.
A problem with most warmups is that they don’t allow you take advantage of the benefits. A quick jog on a treadmill and a few warmup sets might break a sweat, but it won’t prime your body to move serious weight. Worse, it could lead to training injuries.
Instead, use moves and drills that are designed to put your body in the right place — physically and mentally — for maximum results.
Do these 10 warmup moves to prime your body for any muscle-building workout.
