Warming up is essential to avoid injury.

Going into a workout too fast can lead to poor performance and sudden strain on your muscles and tendons. Warmup should last 5 to 10 minutes depending on intensity. This involves stretching and short cardio to get your body and mind ready.

When it comes to stretching, be sure to cover:

  • Shoulders
  • Elbows
  • Wrists
  • Hips
  • Knees
  • Legs
  • Ankles

For cardio, we recommend:

  • Jump rope (3 minutes+)
  • Short jog with bursts of sprinting (20 second jog, 10 second sprint for 3-5 minutes)
  • Knee raises to chest

Stay tuned for our warm up video that will show you how we warm up, and how you can too!
