WHO WANTS TO GET HOT??
Not too hot, of course — just enough to hit the workout for the day with full confidence knowing your body is primed and prepped, Functional Bodybuilding style. FBB Warmup: Volume One provides all the moves you need to activate muscles, strengthen imbalances from side to side, improve skill, and build heat. All with a fun mix of movements that keep things fresher than a new pair of knee sleeves.
STEP AWAY FROM THE FOAM ROLLER
Has this ever happened to you? Unsure of how to approach your warmup, you hop on a random piece of cardio equipment until your heart starts going thumpity thump, grab a foam roller and try to look smooth in some very awkward positions, and move to the barbell for a few empty bar reps of something or other. Done! Except…your last rep of the day felt a million times better than your first, and you can’t help but wonder if you could have gotten more from that workout.
Coaches: maybe you’re a movement maestro and you’re the one writing the warmup of the day. (Aren’t you sick of thinking up this stuff??) How do you get your class moving with quality first thing in the morning when they have a major case of the Mondays and you know there’s a chunky chipper ahead?
TRANSCEND YOUR TRANSITIONS
Everyone can get excited about a sweaty, sexy workout, especially when it involves an express train to PR town. The movements that get you there, though, are treated as throwaway. Nobody logs them. Nobody asks about them (until you start doing ours…) And nobody counts them, unless they fall into the “accessory” category, as if they’re worth less than the rest of your training.
We beg to differ! Warmups are an incredible chance to work quality movement into your day so the precious first section of your training doesn’t go to waste. With FBB Warmups, you can:
- Prepare for the workout ahead with just the right dose of energy
- Wake up your musculature and CNS
- Increase blood flow without boring cardio
- Activate stabilizer muscles that will keep you in better positions
- Strengthen imbalances from side to side
- Work on skill progressions while you’re still fresh
- Shake things up with a fantastic mix of moves
- Never have to think up a warm up
- Finally enjoy warming up!!
