Lesson 3 – The Warmup

This is an entire course in itself, but for now, here are the basics. Note: We provide warmups with every training program and workout we provide.

“If you don’t have time to warm up, you don’t have time to work out.”

“If you don’t have time to warm up, you don’t have time to work out.”

“If you don’t have time to warm up, you don’t have time to work out.”

Yes, that was three times, say it out loud.

The 5 P’s of the Warmup

Why we ALWAYS warmup.

  1. Pre-Workout – Do it before every workout, no exceptions.
  2. Purpose – It has a purpose so do it with purpose.
  3. Prepare – Prepare the muscle, joints, and nervous system for the workout.
  4. Prevent – It prevents injury. This is the most important purpose for a warmup.
  5. Perform – A good warmup will boost your performance so you can do your best in the workout, therefore improving your results.

The 3M Warmup

Here’s how our warmups go. You’ll begin every workout by following these steps:

  1. Massage – Do soft tissue work such as foam rolling, massage balls, etc.
  2. Mobility – Stretch the muscles and explore full range of motion joint-by-joint.
  3. Movement – Perform dynamic movements to increase blood flow and actually warm up the body.

The 3M also means 3 minutes minimum for each step. Wow, that worked out nicely and so will you if you follow this. This is built into every one of the warmups we provide you. You can also create your own warmup following the 3M Warmup.

When you are warmed up, you can get to work.
