Women's Fitness (UK) - - Contents -

We all know warmups are a chore – if you’re any­thing like us, you’re prob­a­bly su­per keen to get right into the thick of the work­out when you hit the gym. But as well as be­ing im­por­tant in pre­vent­ing in­juries, it’s be­com­ing more and more ev­i­dent that a suf­fi­cient warm-up will also boost re­sults by get­ting your body prop­erly primed for the gru­elling ses­sion ahead. That’s why we love this move, which raises your heart rate safely and gets your core ready to work hard.

‘This slightly un­ortho­dox ex­er­cise is a great test of dy­namic core sta­bil­ity and one that is a great tool to get you in tune with your body, wak­ing up your cen­tral ner­vous sys­tem in the process,’ adds strength and con­di­tion­ing coach Dan Lawrence. So, if you’re se­ri­ous about your train­ing, add this move to your arse­nal.
