As we age, muscle elasticity decreases, and warming up properly expands your range of motion to help counteract those deficits. Check out this super quick and easy prerun warmup you can use before every run:
Shoulder Rolls: Roll your shoulders backward several times, then forward.
Full Arm Circles: Keeping your arms straight and out to the side, circle your arms forward and then backward.
Washing Machine: Stand straight and twist your upper body from side to side. Most of the rotation should come from your hips.
Knee to Chest: Stand straight, bring your right knee to your chest while keeping your left leg straight, and rise up on your left tiptoes as you clasp your hands in front of your right knee. Take a step forward and alternate legs, hugging your left knee to your chest while rising up on your right toes. Keep your core engaged and strong.
Heel to Butt: Stand straight, take a step forward, and bring your right foot to your right glute. Alternate with each step. Remember to keep your core strong and back straight.
