Kicked Up Fitness Event - Recap on Warm Up Routines

  • 11/21/2018

BELOW IS A FOLLOW UP TO THE DISCUSSION WE HAD AT KICKED UP FITNESS ON NOVEMBER 14.


ATC,

First off thank you for letting me be a part of a great talk with tons of good nutritional knowledge. Just to recap a little bit about what I spoke of regarding warm-ups:

1. Should last around 15-20 min

2. 60-80% max effort during the warm up. Build up to these percentages.

3. A good portion should be light cardio to increase internal body temperature.

4. The other portion of your warm-up should consist of preparing the specific areas of your body you intend to use. Example: If you plan to run make sure you do some hip, knee, and ankle mobility exercises in order to prepare the specific joints for activity.

5. If you have any injuries or rehab exercises these make great warm-up exercises

5. Avoid static stretching pre-exercise

6. Post Work-out: Nutrition! Good recovery comes from good nutrition. When you are in season, training your 2000+ hours a week, on back to back days: Nutrition and Rest are excellent ways to recover.


If anyone has any questions regarding this material do not hesitate to contact me. If you have any pain, there is a problem! Take care of your problems so you can improve performance. I would also like to extend a free movement assessment to any of the athletes who were a part of the group. It is a quick 10-15 minute over look at the gross movement of your body. It has been shown to be a good predictor of injury risk. Good luck to you all, stay mobile!
