Let’s talk warmup. Today we are going to lead you through a dynamic warmup which has 3 goals.
Goals of Dynamic Warmup
1. get your nervous system activated and ready to move
2. get blood flowing to your muscles and warm them up so they are elastic
3. get your body to start the cycles of breaking down fuel stores and get your energy systems ready to provide long term energy for exercise.
Also, if you are focusing on a certain body part to exercise, focus more of your dynamic warmup on that area.
This will help you avoid injuries, perform better and perform longer. Without a proper warmup you will begin your exercise routine on cold, stiff muscles and if you start pushing large loads right away you can not only strain muscles, you can also produce lots of lactic acid in the muscles which can effect the longevity of your performance.
