#80 Warm up for better fitness adaptations and to hate your workouts less

July 6, 2018

Have you ever noticed how your second interval in the middle of those intervals is easier than the first? 

That's probably because you haven't warmed up properly. And while a full warm up is time consuming, it can be the thing that gives you so much more out of the session, allows you to enjoy it a whole lot more and creates better fitness adaptations too. 

In this episode I talk about:

  • Fuelling your quality sessions
  • What a warm up looks like for interval training vs sprint training
  • The rest times you should be taking in between your warm up and your sessions
  • What kind of stretches and dynamic movements you could include to help you warm up
  • Why you should shorten the workout and not the warm up. 

Here is a sample warm up to get you started!
