What’s the Ideal Warm-Up?
Every warm-up will be different, depending on your fitness level and the goal of your workout. But as a jumping off point, start with these four basic goals for every warm-up as outlined by the National Strength and Conditioning Association.
Warm your joints, muscles, and prep your body for exercise with mobility movements. If you've got one, now is also a great time for foam rolling. Start by rolling your back, then hit every section of the legs, glutes, and hip flexors.
