Warm Up!

Arm RaisesArm Raises

Arm Raises

To warm up your upper body, stand with your feet about shoulder width apart. Hold your arms out in front of your shoulders and bend your elbows so that your hands are just at head level. Push your arms straight upward, and back down to the starting position. Repeat this sequence, picking up the pace. Continue this motion for a full minute.

Shoulder Rolls

Stand with your feet a comfortable distance apart. Keep your arms at your sides. Roll your shoulders forward in a circle for 10 to 15 seconds. Then roll your shoulders backward in a circle for another 10 to 15 seconds. This is a good exercise to try throughout the day, particularly if you sit in front of a computer for hours at a time.

Marching in Place

Walking or marching in place is a great way to warm up your entire body. Simply stand with your feet together. Begin lifting your knees high, in alternating fashion. Combine marching in place with Arm Raises for an even more comprehensive warm up. March in place for up to 5 minutes prior to starting your workout.
