The Best Warm-up

If you value the long-term health of your muscles, joints, and body in general, I hope you're warming up before you put a couple hundred pounds on your back and squat it below parallel. The only real question is, what's the best way to warm-up? Scientific research leads us to believe that a dynamic, movement-oriented warm-up going through full ranges of motion is the best option available, not static stretching.

Just to make sure, this means actual light squats right? leading up to the worksets?

Thanks

Read my most recent article, "6 Keys to a Killer Workout," as it goes in-depth. Basically, you want an active means that's general (e.g. dynamic flex) and then an active means that's specific (e.g. the movement you are training).

Stay strong
