Warm ups are often over looked and rarely performed properly. Professional teams and organizations bring me in to fix their antiquated warm up protocols and I am blown away by the drills and techniques being used. (And that’s at the Profesional level! Can you imagine what Ive seen in the amateur ranks?). I like to separate the workout into Dynamic Warm Up, Performance Circuit, Dynamic Cool Down. I believe the warm up should incorporate elements that you are going to be performing in your workout or live game situations. If you can slow these elements down and refine the patterns you will have a better chance of executing them at full game speed or under load.I also believe that your warm up should be an assessment and your assessment should be a warm up. You will understand once you go through my High TripleXity warm up protocols. Its a workout in itself.
The idea of the dynamic warm up is to:
• Increase body temperature.
• Stimulate Neural/Muscular Connection.
• Increase Athleticism and Coordination.
• Simulate movement patterns associated with the exercise that are to be performed in the workout.
• Include stability and mobility drills creating a balance between these 2 key elements of function movement.
•Gradually increase the intensity of the workout to prepare the mind and body for the workout ahead.
