So… what DO Belly Breathing, Peeing Dogs, and Spiderman All Have in Common…?

They are all integral parts of a full warm-up regimen, of course!


Most people avoid warming-up for the following reasons:

1. They find it boring

2. They find it too time-consuming

3. They just flat-out aren’t sure what to do.


A few months ago I wrote a comprehensive article for EliteFTS Detailing exactly what to do in your warm-up.  Within the article, there is a video showing good and bad form for most of the exercises, as well as a complete write-up of exactly how to perform each exercise, progressions and regressions, common form flaws, cues, etc.

Of course it would be ideal to perform a warm-up that was tailored to your exact needs  but if you can’t do that, this is the next best thing!


So back to those excuses above?

1. It’s boring – This warm-up routine is far from boring, and if it helps you feel better and lift more weight?  Well there’s nothing boring about that!!

2. It’s too time-consuming – This entire warm-up can be done in less than 15 minutes! (and you know you spend at least that long walking on the treadmill and doing a couple of toe touches and side bend stretches trying to get “warmed-up” anyway!)

This picture could ONLY be more amazing if she was wearing a unitard.


3. You’re not sure what to do. It’s all outlined below! BOOM!


There you have it.  No more excuses.  Now get to warming up!
