Before jumping into your training sessions it is important you do a warm-up first. Aim to arrive at your training sessions about 10-15 minute earlier to go through your warm up routine. Sure, the warm-up may add a few minutes to your exercise routine, but it is well worth it.
Warming up will help prepare your body for the session ahead. A warm-up gradually revs up your cardiovascular system by raising your body temperature and increasing blood flow to your muscles.
At Adaptive Strength (formerly Box33)there are two (2) parts to our warm-up.
1. Foam Rolling sequence (5-7min)
2. Mobility Sequence (5-7min)
Apart from helping warm you up, these two sequences act as an excellent movement preparation and feedback system.
They not only addresses the main components of a good neurologically driven warm-up, you will also receive real-time feedback on the quality and capacity of your movement.
This is the first step in listening to your body. The real-time and immediate information can show you the need for additional movement preparation or correctives for better movement, stability, or mobility.
