My Warm Up

August 26, 2009

So i decided to post a video rather than try to explain everything i do for warm up. It is great to have a routine before training just like having a ritual before your golf swing or as a baseball player at bat. It does more than get your body ready to move. The mental part of training is at least 50% of your performance so make sure you can visualize yourself performing at the top of your game.

    Dutch,

    Nice warm up and even better music choice, strong like the lion ras! Your warm up is actually simialr to one that my wife and I use at CrossFit MadTown. On the leg swings have you ever tried to do them from standing on the ball of the foot and staying off the heal? It is a nice variation. My old buddy Max Mormont told me to check out your blog and I have liked the info you have been putting out, keep it up!

    Thanks Dutch. As usual, good stuff. I’m going to work the inchworm and leg swings into my warm-up now!

    Wha Gwan, Dutch!

    Music is cris bwoi.

    Your warm-up is exactly what we do for our Muay Thai warm-up, well up until the jump squats it is anyway. We’re missing the jump squats, Inch worm and cobra which I think would be more useful for our MMA class.

    Thanks for posting,

    One love

    I’ve travelled now to approx. 1/2 dozen affiliates and have taken part in their scheduled WODs and have found the differences in warmup to be extremely varied. Some affiliates have no formal warmup, other’s used the “Official” CF warmup, while others took advantage of the motto “Our warmup is your workout!”

    Dutch, thx for offering up a great mix of dynamic movements to warm you up, not wipe you out!

    After being the test subject for my gym and trying this warm-up out for a few weeks… It’s now a daily routine for everyone. I love it, wakes you up and gets you ready to do work. Thank you!
