The YWCA Meet The Trainer Follow-Up

It was fun to do this short 10-minute presentation of my top five favorite warm-up exercises. Thanks to everyone who participated and the crowd that watched.

#1. Posture Check

It helps to set the intention of the workout, plus, it identifies which areas of your body need some exercise support.

 #2. Sit Down/Stand up  

Sitting back when you sit down and lifting both arms overhead at the same time is a good total body type movement.

#3. Wall Chest Press

Engage your abs, lead with your forehead, not your chin, and keep your shoulder blades squeezed together as you release toward the wall and push away.


#4. Inner-Thigh Rock

Lean forward from the hips as you rock from side to side. The goal is to feel a stretch in the inner thigh and not in your knees.


#5 Hamstring Kick  

Stand tall to start these alternating leg kicks.

Dynamic warm-up exercises are a great way to get some physical activity into your busy sedentary life. Spend a minute doing each exercise, including the posture check. That’s six minutes towards more activity in your day. You have to start somewhere.
