OPEX Fitness Coaching Director Mike Lee Answers
Here are some of the factors you need to consider when working out:
The Energy System Being Used – Is your workout a strength piece or is it meant to be something sustainable and aerobic? The characteristics of your workout define the way in which you warm-up. Aerobic pieces don’t require as much warm-up while strength pieces require long warm-ups.
The Type of Movements in your Workout – What type of muscle contractions are taking place in your training piece? The process for warming up for dumbbell snatches is much different than for a assault bike sprint.
Preparation for training is completely individualized. Speak to a professional OPEX Coach today about your warm-ups needs.
