Warming Up

Getting hurt sucks!

We exercise to lose weight, build muscle, and feel better about ourselves, right? Well, it’s pretty tough to do any of those things lying on a couch with a pulled hamstring/groin/face.
Okay you can’t pull your face, but I’m trying to prove a point here so shut it. 
Everyday I cringe as I watch people wander into a gym, immediately lie down on a bench, and start cranking out their workout with heavy weight within seconds.  These are the people that end up hurting themselves and missing weeks/months due to ignorance/apathy (Which is worse? Don’t know, don’t care!)

Luckily, you’re smarter than the average bear, which is why you’re reading Nerd Fitness.

Today, you’re gonna learn all about the importance of warming up BEFORE every workout.  On top of that, I’ll even teach you HOW to warm up.
Why warm up?
Above all else, the most important thing you can do when working out is warming up properly.
Now, you might be saying to yourself, “Come on.  Surely it’s not the MOST important thing…”
To which I’d reply: “First, don’t call me Shirley.  Secondly, if you don’t have enough time to warm up, then you don’t have enough time to work out.”
