In this issue, I will give some alternative
warm-ups that you can perform. I generally
give alternative warm-ups as a change of
pace or if I'm pressed for time. These
include: resistance band exercises, track
hurdle hip mobility exercises, medicine ball
exercises for core and shoulders, light jog
for 3-5 min. with change of direction after
each completed lap or diagonal runs across
field or court usually 4-6 times.
Now, I don't do the latter two together.
I'll usually pick one and do them first then
do 3-4 exercises of each of the first 3
warm-ups ( resistance band, hurdles and
med. ball). You can also do jump rope warm-up
instead of the two different run routines.
All of these will increase blood flow to the
large muscle groups like the quads, hips and
shoulders. This, in turn, will give your body
a good warm-up for your upcoming exercise
For more information on any of the warm-up
exercises or equipment mentioned, please
