All warm-ups should involve a foam roller. Mosher describes the exercise as a "great way to start basic movement and increase body temperature." It helps your body decrease tension in the muscles and loosen up any of the tight muscles/fascia that will be trained that day — as well as any tender points. "Upper-body days, I would focus on the lats, pecs, and posterior shoulders the most." Mosher says. "Lower-body days, I would focus on the glutes, groin, hip flexors, and calfs."
And if rolling out your joints seems tedious or simple, Mosher says that's a mistaken mindset when it comes to health. "Sometimes foam-rolling and mobility drills get boring, but skipping them too often can lead you down the path to injury because you did not prepare correctly," he says.
