What to do during a workout?

 

This is a great question, and the annoying but truthful answer is: It depends. It depends on your experience, fitness level, mobility, strength, schedule, access to equipment, movement limitations/pain, and more.

 

Here’s a quick guide on what to include in your strength workout. I must preface this by saying I highly recommend you work with a professional personal trainer for safety and best results. Everybody moves differently and has different needs. Do your best to insert movements that best suit you and your ability and mobility level.

 

Warm up:
Hip mobility 2-4 movements.

Shoulder mobility 2-4 movements 

Ankle/calf mobility 1-2 movements

Something dynamic: Jumping jacks, hopping, skipping, bike, etc.

 

 

For the following complete the sets and reps in the first block before you move on to the next one.
