Exercise Descriptions – Warm-up

Disclaimer:
You must have a Certified Personal Trainer (CPT) or Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) provide you with instruction on correct form for all exercises.

Warm-up

T-Squat
• Hold your hands out to your sides in a “T” formation at all times.
• Keep your upper back and shoulders tensed throughout the exercise.
• Stand with your feet just greater than shoulder-width apart.
• Start the movement at the hip joint. Push your hips backward and “sit back into a chair”. Make your hips go back as far as possible.
• Squat as deep as possible, but keep your low back tensed in a neutral position.
• Don’t let your lower back become rounded.
• Push with your glutes, hamstrings, and quadriceps to return to the start position.
Close-grip Pushups
• Same as regular push-ups, but keep your hands shoulder-width apart and keep your elbows tucked into your sides as you do the pushup.
