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.
