10 Great Band Warm–Up Exercises
As this body of mine gets older, I find it increasing more challenging to find that workout that get it ready to knock out a great interval strength workout. I am a firm believer that if I can go through a solid and effective warm-up, the likelihood I me getting a life changing workout is better.
The problem is finding that special way to get me in the zone.
When I am going to be knocking out a strength workout with or without bands, I find doing a low resistance dynamic band routine is a very effective way to get all system dialed in.
I recently tested this concept with 2 different bootcamp groups it was unanimous. This form of warm-up was not only very effective but it made getting the body ready to exercise intensely a whole lot less painful.
Take a look at what I a mean and understand that you can use several different exercises but make them total body as much as possible
Here is my suggested warm-up:
- Band stretching like I demo in the Total Flexibility DVD followed by these 10 easy dynamic band exercises
- Alternate Kneeling Planks
- Side hip drops Right and Left
- Shoulder Circles
- High pulls
- Alternating shoulder press
- Over head split squat Right and Left
- Lateral Hip walking
- Lunging or stationary Pull apart
PS… Any of the single band packages are a great package option to get all the bands you need to do Free Band Training as well as this dynamic warm-up. http://tinyurl.com/2cr3lg3
