Ep. 211 - How To Maximise Strength & Minimise Injury Through Effective Warm Up

Welcome back to RNT Fitness Radio and today we start off by discussing one of the biggest mistakes we all made earlier in our training careers: excessive warm ups. I personally used to spend up to 45 minutes foam rolling, stretching and all sorts, before I’d even lift a weight, and on this episode, we discuss the best strategies to effectively and efficiently warm up so you can maximise strength, mind-muscle connection and the reason why most warm up, to minimise injury.

“Strike a balance and perform at your best.”
