Fitness Tips – Day 8 (Warm-ups)

Today’s fitness tips are warmup exercises. Keep in mind, these moves are not all-inclusive, meaning there are plenty of other exercises that are not mentioned. These are just meant to give you some moves to try. Be sure to warm up the muscles you plan to exercise during your workout. We have included combination exercises that can warm up your muscles for total body workouts. Depending on the length of your actual workout, your warmup should last for 5-15 minutes, and your cool down time should match your warmup time.

  • Arm Circles – wide and narrow – front and back
