What’s the most common thing missed before people start their fitness routine? Warming up. Many people are guilty of this, but it’s one of the most important things to do. Warming up your muscles means that you will be reducing risk and becoming more engaged/deeper in mobility within your exercises. If your girl is to not hurt yourself in the long run, progress in your fitness development, and maybe even hit a PR (personal record), warming up is essential.
Let’s look at a banded leg day warmup - complete each exercise for 30 seconds.
Toe Touch + Squat
Double Band Hip Thrust
Band Side Lunge
Warmup instructed by @caitlinraefitness.
Some people like to warm up with a quick HIIT, complete HIIT as their workout, or do a HIIT finisher. Try this one with your next leg day (don’t forget to set your interval timer).
Touchdown Squat Jacks
Now onto the Leg Workout of the Day:
Deficit Sumo Squat superset with Calf Raises
Seated Leg Curl
