First, why should we warm up before training?
In the gym we can see all kind of people, those who do not even know what warming up means, and those who do 1h warm ups and are exhausted before even starting the workout.
The warm up is an essential part of training routine; it allows performing and staying healthy at once. However, why is it so important for powerlifters?
Recovery is without any doubt one of the most important thing to take care of during a program, whether it is for powerlifting or not, if you want to take your performances to the next level.
Almost every serious (or less serious) athlete do give his 100% during workouts. Everyone enjoy hitting PR’s, doing more volume then before, changing up the schedule with more frequency, more variations etc…But, how many are ready to do what others do not? How many are ready to make efforts outside of the gym?
