Coach Hillary Kigar recommends three warm-up exercises that every runner should complete before diving into their workouts.
Take your workout on the road. You can keep on track with your fitness routine no matter where you are. These exercises will work your muscles and elevate your heart rate with zero equipment required. Pair these exercises with part 1 of our Road Warrior workout to have a complete sweat session!
Perform 10 reps of each exercise (one after the other) resting 30 seconds between exercises. After finishing all the moves, rest for two minutes before repeating the circuit once or twice more.
Bent Over Ys and Ts
10 reps each letter
Standing with your feet shoulder-width apart, hinge at the hips with your knees slightly bent. Your back should be flat and almost parallel with the floor with your arms hanging straight down (a). Pulling your shoulder blades toward each other, lift your arms into a Y position with thumbs pointing toward the ceiling (b). Bring your arms down and back to the Y for 10 reps. Then take your arms straight out to the side to form a T and back down, repeating for 10 more reps (c).
