ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsA 10-minute walk on the treadmill, few jumping jacks and some static stretching, this is what most people's warm-up routine is comprised of. On the other hand, you might see some elite lifters (powerlifters and Olympic weightlifters) who perform foam rolling, stretching, mobility drills and spend 30-40 minutes in their warm up. So, what is the perfect formula for a warm-up that maximises strength and muscle gains? In this article, I'll be guiding you as to how you can create a perfect warm-up routine for yourself. But, first the science! First Things First: Flexibility Is Not The Objective Of A Warm-Up © Pixabay Unlike what most people believe, the objective of a warm-up routine in any sport is not to restore or increase flexibility. Flexibility is defined as the total range of motion a joint or series of joints is capable of operating. And in any athlete, flexibility is only required as much as demanded by the sport. In the gym, this means the ability to hit enough depth in squats and perform other exercises with Full Range of Motion. Flexibility demands of different strength sports in ascending order: Bodybuilding < Powerlifting < Weightlifting & CrossFit. Remember, there is no reward for excess flexibility in the gym and hyper-flexibility (more than required) actually has a downside as it reduces the stretch reflex mechanism creating a drop in strength. The Real Objective Of A Warm-Up The primary objective of a warm-up is to enhance performance and reduce injury risks by increasing body temperature. Raising body temperature increases blood flow and oxygen availability in muscles. These factors increase neuromuscular sensitivity and enhance the efficiency of muscles in force production. Also, warming the body primes up joints and connective tissues for an intense training. Static Vs Dynamic (The Much Heated Debate) © YouTube Static stretching is where you hold a given stretch for 5-60 seconds, whereas dynamic stretching is where you perform a series of drills moving explosively. The data on which is better is actually not very clear. The reduction in injury risks is similar after performing static & dynamic stretching. But static stretching also elongates and relaxes the muscles prior to training which can reduce muscle contraction and consequently lifting performance this does not occur with dynamic. Hence, the current data suggest that a dynamic warm-up is more beneficial. Less Is More There are more than 1,000 dynamic warm-up drills and if you perform each one of them, I doubt you will have the time and energy to lift weights. Now, that you know the primary goal of a warm-up. Understand that 'Less is More' here, do only as much is required in minimum time to be able to perform exercises on any given day. For example, if you have a Bench-press day, focus mainly on warming up the musculature involved in benching not squatting. Sample Plan Here is a generic warm-up routine which will work great if you do not have any injuries or limiting factors. We will talk about how to improvise this routine in the next section. Forward Leg Swings x 10 Side to Side Leg Swing x 10 Arm Circle Forward x 10 Arm Circle Backwards x 10 Crossbody slaps x 10 Walking Lunges x 10 (each leg) Band Pull Aparts x 10 Shoulder Dislocations using Band x 10 This routine will take you max 5 minutes and should be more than enough for the majority of people. Remember to perform each drill explosively. When More Is Actually Needed If you have a certain muscle group which is injured or have excessive tightness limiting you from going through a full range of motion (like tight hips preventing hitting depth in squats) then you can consider adding a few more pre-hab, dynamic and even static stretch exercises in your warm-up routine.
