Always Warm Up
You may think you’re saving time by skipping it, but you’ll pay for it by decreased gains in your workout. It literally gets your muscles “warm,” plus jump-starts the mind-body connection, priming your muscles for exercise. Warming up enhances your performance by helping you go into a fuller range of motion during moves like a squat, for example. Aim to spend 10 minutes on dynamic stretches like butt kicks and walking lunges. Foam rolling before a workout can also help.
