ST WORKOUT OF THE MONTH
Full Body Warm Up
Now that you’ve been skwaating, benching, and deadlifting for months, years, or decades, you need to implement a solid warm-up program [into your training]. This will keep you mobile, properly warmed-up, and healthy for many more years under the bar. Spending 20, 10, or even five minutes before each training session to strengthen and improve your overall health will make a huge impact in your long-term training. Before you say you don’t have enough time—make time! Make it a priority in order to ensure that you’re able to lift for many years to come.
