How You Should Warm Up Before You Run

Why it's important to warm up for your runs, plus all the moves you need in your pre run warm up!


I have been an athlete my entire life. Since I could walk I was put into all kinds of sports, from soccer to swimming and softball. And you know what we always did to start practice and games? We warmed up!

When I started running track in middle school we spent more time warming up for our workout than any other sport I'd ever played. We spent so much time warming up for track because running is hard on the body team. Your warm up for any sport is critical to your performance!

Warming up gets your muscles, joints and central nervous system ready for the pressures you're about to put on them. Your warm up will not only help you be injury and pain free but also perform better.
