Brian MacKenzie of CrossFit Endurance shares his thoughts on the ideal warm-up structure for running sessions.
His comment: “…the shorter (and therefore more intense) the session is, the longer (and more structured) the warm up needs to be”, echoes much what our coaches normally recommend when asked about warming up for running.
The obvious problem is that most of us don’t have a spare 40mins to warm up before a 10 x 400m track session, and then 15mins to cool down – as life, work etc… tends to get in the way!
So, perhaps use the great advice and concepts video above to structure your own warm-up, appropriate to the time you have available.Last updated on March 2nd, 2021.
