Most of the athletes I work with are high school to collegiate male athletes. I love ‘guy sports’ and in particular love working with this age group. Typically, these guys are eager to get stronger, faster, and more powerful, and are willing to put in the work to get there.
However, there is one common theme amongst these athletes. Despite their efforts and enthusiasm when eating iron in the weight room, this is not the case with the dreaded warm up. Lack of focus, doing it half-heartedly, and rushing through it tends to be a common theme.
