My typical warm up
The jog will be very easy to start with and eventually get a little bit quicker as my muscles start to warm up. Once I’ve finished the jog I will then go into a series of activation exercises and drills which normally take about 15-20 minutes. I then finish off with some 3-4 strides before starting the race or session. I wouldn’t do any static stretching in my warm up. It is all dynamic exercises which is probably my attempt to wake the body up.
