Running Warm Up Exercises: Five Minute Routine


I’ve posted previously about warming up before a run. It seems to be a topic most runners have a view on! We do all seem to differ to an extent in terms of how much of a warm up we each need for a given session.

As a rule of thumb, I usually suggest that the more intense the planned session, the more significant your warm up needs to be.

In this short video, I wanted to share a simple five minute routine of exercises that I often recommend to runners as a warm up to use after a long day behind a desk, in the car, or otherwise sitting for too long.

Let me know how you get on 🙂
