How to PROPERLY Warm Up Before Weights

How to PROPERLY Warm Up Before Weights

In this video I’m going to be covering a upper body and lower body warm up for weights based on what scientific literature has shown to be most effective. I’ll go through the 3 essential parts of a warm up for workouts, and discuss what you should and shouldn’t be doing. The main goal of warm up exercises before a workout is to warm up the muscles to be worked, which helps increase blood flow to the working muscles and can lead to improved strength and performance during your workout. So you want to focus your warm up exercises on the musculature you’ll be training. A few key muscles that people tend to forget to warm up are the rotator cuffs, which is why I’ve included them in my upper body warm up routine. Keep in mind that there are so many different warm up exercises and warm up stretches you can do before your workout. Although I’ve provided a sample upper body warm up and lower body warm up, feel free to swap in exercises that works better for you. Also keep in mind that your warm up will vary for your sport or type of training. This warm up is ideal for general weightlifters, but would likely differ for elite powerlifters and other groups.
