Dynamic Warm-Up For Sports and Running

Get Fit Challenge 5: Pre-Workout Warm-Up

FitSugar reader kmariem shared her warm-up for the fifth challenge of our Get Fit For 2011 giveaway.

So, I run, train with weights, swim, x-country ski and all that good stuff.  Those activities vary, but my warm-up doesn't.  It has five steps, repeated three times.  

  1. 10 standing lunges on each side.  
  2. 15 mountain climbers.  
  3. 15 chops
  4. 10 push-ups  
  5. 5 shoulder stretches (use a bar or rope to loosen up your shoulders, forward and back).

 So that's it.
