Before any workout we want to warmup up our body to avoid injury. The warmup should take about 10 minutes and prepare your body for the main workout.
10 four count jumping jacks
50 meters jog forward 50 meters backward
10 four count windmills
50 meter karaoke
20 four count mountain climbers
50 meter high knees jog
20 four count flutter kicks
10 air squats
10 Samson stretch
10 single leg deadlift
10 wide feet standing windmill
10 wide feet touch floor 1-2-3
10 inchworm to pushup
10 mountain climbers (deep lunge) slow feet to hands
10 PVC pipe shoulder pass throughs
10 overhead squats
Here are a few cool down yoga stretches that I like to do after the workout. Work on your breathing while you hold each pose. Breath in through your nose and out through your mouth. Breathe deep from your belly and get rid of all of the old stale air.
