  • This is SOOOO EFFECTIVE! It’s actually beyond belief. All the weights had my body feeling stiff and am only 21 ��. So il defo start in cooperating this

  • This is an amazing warm up, I do the whole thing before any lifting and the first 4.25 minutes before a run (don’t want to tire myself out before cardio haha). Thank you for this video!

  • This really helped me warm up my body before interpreting (sign language). Arms and wrists move about 13,000 times an hour when interpreting; going into it cold led to tendinitis, but on the mend!

  • I really like this dude… he is only about getting into the point of the vid.. and i will use this warmup for good because I never had a good warmup and that held me back in my training, so thank you for being part of good content gang

  • Thank you, thank you, thank you, for this. I’m one of those guys who warms up by just getting under the bar and working my way to my working weight. I did these warm-ups an hour ago before benching and I was ready to go. My bench felt great on every set. Awesome advice.

  • This is amazing, thank you so much. Very effective, more than a regular workout. How many ttimes per week is this recommended to do?

  • Starting in 2019.
    We’re going through a weight loss challenge with my hubby this year. He like your videos.

    Beginning weight
    Me: 152 lbs
    Hubby: 263

    Will update from time to time.

  • Thank you very much for this video, the older I get the more that stretching is absolutely necessary. In order to constantly workout without soreness or injury. Thanks again!

  • Would you suggest doing the whole warmup before each workout or only the warmup that specifically targets your exercise of the day?

  • This is much better than the warmup I’ve been doing. Jumping jacks, mountain climbers, flutter kicks and pushups along with dynamic stretches for 5 minutes.

  • Overhead triceps stretch 01:17
    Arm Cross Stretch 03:45
    Chest Stretch 05:00
    Rear Arm Raise 06:17
    Forearm Stretch 07:32
    Abdominal Stretch 08:44
    Lower Back Stretch 10:00
    Oblique Stretch 11:14

  • Good, except the beginning. 0:28 NEVER EVER start the warmup so fast like that especially with high kicks, except if you want to injure your hamstrings.
    Start slowly for at least 3 moves, then go higher. Or, at best, do some basic hamstring stretches first.

  • Ever since I started doing your warm-ups and cool-downs, my post-workout soreness has been totally minimal! Before, my fitness journey would always be cut short by soreness that lasted days. Turns out I was warming and cooling down completely wrong! Thanks for the videos!

  • I’m a far guy and I want to work out and loose weight. Should I do this warm out, go for a run, take a like 30 minute break, do the warm up again, and then do my exercises?

  • It’s 2018 and i am still using this dynamic stretching warm up before i do my workouts. I also use this warm up before i go to work to prevent injuries and prepare my body for anything. It’s the best warm up ever! I even bought their black t-shirt and gray hoodie sweater to support them. They saved my health, and because of that, I am stronger and fitter than ever. Thank you very much coach! God bless you and your family!

  • Just tried this. Been working out for 8 months without stretching barely at all. I could feel my body activate alot of inactive muscles. Going to keep doing this for real.

  • I heard you’re suppose to stretch after a workout.. and warm up your muscles by moving around for example benching with the bar would be great warm up before hitting chest. If you stretch first your muscles are loose and it’ll be harder to hit those heavy weights.
