How-to: Upper Body Warm-Up

Posted on: March 18th 2017

This movement prep will help you be more successful in your upper body workouts, by improving your mobility and stability while warming you up!

The video itself takes a little longer as I walk you through the do’s, don’ts and alternatives, but the whole warm-up routine should not take you more than 5 minutes. 

Do: Follow this sequence before doing heavy lifting or extensive upper body training.

Don’t: Let your ribs poke forward during pass-throughs, pull-aparts, or cactus arms.

Here’s the sequence:

  • 10 Pass-throughs
  • 10 Cactus Arms
  • 10 Wall Push-ups
  • 10 Pull-Aparts – overhand
  • 10 Pull-Aparts – underhand
  • 10 T-Spine roll-outs in each position (or modified Cobra stretch)
  • 10 Wrist rotations each direction
