Is warming up really that important? YES! If you do not spend time warming up prior your workout, you are not only increasing your risk of injury, but you are also not going to perform as well in your lifts/sport. What should you do for your warm up? Should you foam roll, walk/run on the treadmill, do you just start off with an empty barbell? All of the above. Your warm up should be dedicated to the joints that are emphasized in your workout, so if you’re a soccer player your warm up should be dedicated to your lower body. Maybe you are going to the gym for a chest day, your warm up should focus around your upper back and shoulders. You don’t have to go wild with your warm up, but spend about 10 minutes of priming the area before you get to work.
