Warm-Up to Strength Training DVD

Traditional warm-ups zap valuable strength and energy! Ultimately, performance suffers. Even worse, the typical warm-up will increase the risk of injury! If you re tired of spinning your wheels and getting nowhere with your training then discover the real secrets to effective workouts.

A proper warm-up will:

  • Increase body temperature and warm the connective tissues
    – Increase blood flow to muscles and heart (i.e. charges the circulatory system)
    – Deliver more oxygen to muscles (specifically greater exchange of oxygen to tissues because hemoglobin gives more oxygen at higher temperatures as well as greater oxygen-carbon dioxide exchange)
    – Increase nerve conduction velocity (i.e. activates the nervous system)
    – Improve efficiency (i.e. rate and strength) of muscle contraction and reaction time
    – Promote more efficient cellular metabolism (i.e. facilitates metabolic transition to activity-specific energy systems)
    – Excite the hormonal system
    – Increase the amount of synovial fluid in joints (thereby decreases the viscosity of the joint capsules)
    – Decrease muscle viscosity
    – Lubricate the joints and reduces muscle and joint stiffness
    – Increase joint range of motion
    – Increase muscle coordination through related movements
    – Increase work capacity
    – Increase attention and focus
    – Decrease stress, anxiety (high anxiety can increase fatigue), and tension
    – Decrease fear of injury and prevent injury altogether

The key word is “proper” warm-up!
