Disecting the Dynamic Warmup

0

I’m a big fan of using dynamic warmup protocols to enhance fitness, prepare an athlete for the specific demands of the succeeding session, and address secondary biomotor abilities that might otherwise go untouched. My warmups typically take anywhere from 20-60 minutes depending on the time of year, the objective for the day, and the individual athlete’s unique characteristics. Some athletes may come to need more or less warmup to feel fully prepared. Likewise differing demands of different sessions require specific protocols to fully prepare the athlete and in so doing reduce their likelihood of injury and enhance their performance (if it’s a performance based workout or competition). For more info, check out this brief video snippet and read my latest article on Dynamic Warmups.
