Proper Warm Up

Having been injured as a result of not getting a good warm up, I highly recommend taking time to make sure your muscles are prepared for work.

Matt Fitzgerald of writes a great post about how to be both general and specific in your warm up efforts.

Muscles need the general warm up of getting prepared for a work out. A slow exercise of any kind like running or vigorous walking can help achieve this. The muscles that will specifically be used in a workout can benefit from stretching and warm up specific to those areas.

Check out Fitzgerald's article to learn how you can improve your warm up efforts and avoid injuries.
