Jennifer Lawrence Hunger Games Workout Warm-Up

Warm Up Like Jennifer Lawrence With This Move

We are pumped to share one of our favorite stories from Self here on FitSugar! This week, they've got the scoop on how Hunger Games actress Jennifer Lawrence warms up before tackling her killer workouts.

Jennifer Lawrence got in blockbuster shape for The Hunger Games. "We did high-energy moves, like backward running and walking lunges, to gain strength, agility, and balance," says on-set coach Joe Horrigan. Her warm-up: carioca, a dynamic stretch that preps you to kick ass without falling on yours.

Find out how to do the carioca after the break!

Your turn: Stand with your right foot diagonally behind your left, heel lifted so your right toes face your left heel (as shown). Step your right foot right, so feet are hip width apart. Step your left foot right, diagonally behind right leg. Step to the right again with your right foot. Step your left foot right, diagonally in front of the right, to return to start. Quickly take 10 of these steps; reverse. Repeat for a minute, finding a rhythm.

If anyone is interested Jennifer also trained with US Olympian Khatuna Lorig for her archery skills. I think archery is a great sport and work out all on its own for your arms,etc. If you are interested definitely check out USA Archery for certified coaches, instructors and all programs that can be found throughout the US. Thank you for sharing this warm up I am going to use for my workouts this Spring!
