The Perfect Full Body Warmup for Any Workout

Written by Harrison Levy — November 05, 2019

One of the most overlooked aspects of training is the warmup. A proper warmup decreases the risk of injury, increases range of motion during a workout, and primes the muscles and heart for the stress they are about to endure.

My favorite way to warmup is with dynamic movements. A dynamic warmup basically means that you are stretching and heating up your muscles by continuously moving, as opposed to a static warmup, where you hold a bunch of still stretches before you exercise. Here's the reason I prefer to warmup with dynamic movements over static stretches: Think of your muscles as elastic bands. If you stretch an elastic band when it's cold, there is a high chance that it will snap. If you stretch it when it is warm, it will be a lot more supple and pliable. 

Below is a full body warmup consisting of dynamic movements that will leave no muscle untouched, and have your whole body feeling supple and energized for the work to come. I do this warmup every day before I exercise, and knock on wood, no injuries to date. It takes less than 10 minutes, and is not only an awesome warmup, but it's actually a pretty great workout in itself. Sometimes when I am short on time or don't have any space or equipment, I'll run through this warmup a few times as my daily workout. Take a scoop of our pre-workout Energizing Superfood, complete this warmup, and I bet your workout will feel amazing. Hope this helps!
