Dynamic Warm-ups Before Stretching

I can’t stress the importance of a dynamic warm-up before stretching.  If you stretch cold muscles you can damage them.  Complete the exercises before you run (this dynamic warm-up is ideal to do before every run)

Glute Bridge – Marching
External Hip Rotation – Sidelying
Leg Overs
Knee Hug – Moving
Reverse Lunge – with Twist
Knee Hug to Forward Lunge – Elbow to Instep
Drop Lunge
Lateral Squat – Low
Inverted Hamstring – Moving Forward
Heel to Butt – Moving Forward with Arm Reach
