The likelihood of a great workout is increased with a thorough warmup. When we warm up, we increase blood flow to our muscles, which decreases tightness, and can reduce the risk of injury. Warming up improves your range of motion, so that exercises can be maximized to their full potential.
When you warm up, do something specific to the work that you’re about to do. For example, if you plan to work on your squats, warm up with air squats first. This way, you are preparing your body for the upcoming exercises by using the same muscles and body parts. When you do add weights, the movement should be be easier because your body is ready for it!
