Movement Preparation (Dynamic Warmup)

Most people mistakenly believe that reaching for their toes is a good way to get ready for exercise.  Actually, it’s a great way to get the muscles to relax, AFTER a workout.

Check out this short video.  Peter is performing a couple of dynamic warm up exercises to get ready for the workout to follow.  We first started with some mobility exercises.  These are more gentle stretches that help keep the mobile joints…well, mobile.  When the mobility joints (ankles, hips, thoracic or mid back & shoulders) stay mobile, they keep the stability joints (knees, lumbar or low back, & neck) pain free.

Check out the video, and let me know if you have any questions…by leaving me a question in the Q & A section of the blog.

live right, Keith
