Stretching like you learned in PE class isn't always the most ideal way to warm up. Quite frankly, a lot of people don't even need to stretch. People like me, who are hypermobile. That's a whole other story though.
Anyway, we warm up to prepare our bodies for what's about to happen in the workout, to begin activating muscles to reduce our risk of injury.
It doesn't need to be complicated or take forever, because I know you don't have a ton of time, nor do you want to spend forever warming up.
Here's what you can do in under 5 min:
- 90/90 belly breathing x1 min
- Glute bridges x20 R/L
- Crawl x20 ft
This is where you'll start! Later on we can add more, but let's get comfortable here first!
This will be done before every workout.
