Here are some extra guidelines before your take action:
- Read through each warmup description carefully; note the correct technique as demonstrated by the trainer in the photographs.
- Go at a comfortable spaces; these moves are not designed to be aerobic.
- Have fun with your warmup; consider performing it to music.
- Never skimp on your warmup; it is the time well spent, and your body will love you for it.
For a full-body warmup, stand with your feet about shoulder-width apart. Step to the right with your right foot, and bring your left foot to meet it. Then quickly step to your left with your left foot, and bring your right foot to meet it. Repeat this sequence, picking up the pace. Keep your movements fluid, rhythmic, and controlled. Continue this step-touch motion for a full minute.
To warm up your upper body, stand with your feet about shoulder-width apart. Hold your arms out in front of your shoulders and bend your elbows so that your hands are just at head level. Pushh your arms straight upward, and back down to the starting position. Repeat this sequence, picking up the pace. Continue this motion for a full minute.
You don’t need an actual jump rope for this warmup; just pretend you have one. With your arms at your sides, rotate your wrists as if you were throwing the jump rope over your head. Jump over the imaginary rope with both feet simultaneously, using small jumping steps. When jumping, hold your body erect, and jump upward no more that an inch of the ground. Bend your knees just slightly upon impact. Continue this motion for a full minute. For a lower-impact version, keep your toes on the ground while raising your heels.
Stand with your feet a comfortable distance apart. Keep your arms at your sides. Roll your shoulders forward in a circle for 10 to 15 seconds. Then roll your shoulders backward in a circle for another 10 to 15 seconds. This is a good exercise to try throughout the day, particularly if you sit in front of a computer for hours at a time.
Stand with your feet a comfortable distance apart. Keep your arms at your sides or on your hips. Drop your head slowly forward, bringing your chin toward your chest. Lift your head and tilt your neck to the right toward your shoulders, then toward the left. Next, tilt your head back, then forward. Repeat this sequence for 30 seconds.
Walking or marching in place is a great way to warm up your entire body. Simply stand with your feet together. Begin lifting your knees high, in alternating fashion. Combine marching in place with Arm Raises, for an even more comprehensive warmup. March in place for up to 5 minutes prior to starting your workout
