Fat Burning Begins with a Warm-up

A proper Warm Up is perhaps the most important part of your workout!
Every workout should begin with a 5-10 minute warm up.  A warm-up is your time to limber up your body—and your mind—in preparation for the workout to come. A warm up can be a simple as a walk or a jog. My outdoor warm-ups combine breathing and posture exercises with joint lubrication exercises, followed by an environmental integration exercise I call “high toes”. If space is limited, you can always do a  “One Spot Warm Up” with exercises that are perfect for situations where you aren’t including a walk to your workout site as part of your warm up.
