What is up youtube so in this video i’m, going to be showing you guys how i warm up for my stretching routines. So this is the actual warm-up, the stretching warm-up before the stretching routine, which is just as important, if not more important than the stretch it’s.
The same as working out guys like you’ve got to warm up before you work out. You’ve got to warm up before you stretch, so what i’m, showing you guys today, first of all, is smack dab out of my flexi booty ebook, which i will link below.
If you guys are interested in building your flexibility. Increasing your flexibility and building your booty in the gym, so i will link that below. If you’re interested, it’s a 28 day program. This flexibility warm-up is done before every single stretching routine.
That’s laid out. So you guys need to be warming up before you’re, stretching it’s, a dynamic stretch, as opposed to a static stretch, so dynamic stretching, is moving stretching and static. Stretching is essentially stretching while you’re.
Staying still. So we’re gonna hop right into it. It’s. Six different exercises. We’re, doing them ten times each. You can totally follow along and then please like subscribe leave. A comment share this with a friend and let me know how how you did all right.
So the first movement is a yogi squat to a wide legged forward fold. So you’re, going to come to your yogi squat. Your heels are down. Your toes are down as much as you can. You can use your elbow to help press your knees wide.
Then your fingertips are going to come down and, as you press your booty up, your hips up, you’re, going to rotate your heels out. So if you can see that heels are going to come in, you’re coming down, and then you’re pressing up, so that’s one two again, we’re, doing it ten times, three.
Four, five. Six, seven, eight, nine and 10. next up is a cossack lunge moving left to right, the more flexible you are, the lower to the ground. You’ll stay the less flexible. The higher up you’ll, be so you’re, going to push over into one side.
Your hands can be up or down on the floor. Depending on your flexibility, you’re, going to come up through center and then switch on over to that side, so that’s one. If you’re, more advanced, try not to use your hands two three, four: five: six! Seven, eight, nine and last one ten.
Next up, we have the kneeling twist. We are going to do it 10 times each side. I’m working without a mat today, so that’s. Why? I have this silly looking little knee pad, but i highly recommend you guys cushioning your knees with something, especially if you do have sensitive knees.
So you’re gonna put one knee down. The other knee is forward. Hips are square, abs are engaged, they’re tucked under i’m, squeezing my back glute. I’m sinking forward just slightly, and i’m twisting towards our front knee.
We’re, going 10, 9, 8, 7. 6. 5. 4. 3. Two one and this one is warming up your quad and your hip. Flexor of that back leg, super important, so switching sides come on up again squeeze tuck under press down through your heels hands up, let’s twist, ten, nine, eight, seven, six, five, four three ooh two and one fourth exercise – is the rocking low lunge, Similar position to our last one, but our front foot is a little bit further forward.
Our hands are on both sides of the front foot and we’re, going to simply straighten and bend that front leg 10 times. So that was one two. We’re working hamstring. We’re working, quad working hip flexor in three four.
This is a really good one, just to do every day, regardless five, six, seven, eight, nine and ten and then switch sides sink into it. First. I am super sore today from doing this workout program and stretching gets more difficult, the more sore you are from working out, but do not let that discourage you two three four five: six, seven, eight nine and last one 10.
moving into exercise number five out of Six all floors knees circles, so shoulders of wrists hips over knees. You can choose to be on your hands or on your elbows guys. I have that cushion just under one knee the knee that i’m going to have on the floor.
The other knee is going to do 10 circles forward and 10 circles backwards, and then we’re going to switch. Let’s, go 10, 9, eight, seven, six, five, four three two and one and then switch directions. Push it back around ten nine, eight, seven, six, five, four three two and a one: all right: we’re, going to switch all right, other side, again hands or elbows.

You will probably want a block and if you’re, even less flexible, you may want two blocks. You may want three blocks take to where you’re at you may not need a block. So i have one block here with me today.
These are called forward fold toe taps. We’re, going to tap each toe ten times to this block, so you’re going to get into your four fold. You may be up here on the block you may be down here. I’m a little bit sore today, so i’m going to come on that medium level and i’m pulling my shoulder blades together.
My back is flat. I don’t want to see this. You guys are here. You need to be up on a couple more blocks. We’re going to be here. Your legs must be straight. They do not have to be completely locked out, but they must be straight.
You’re, going to lift one leg, tap the block and then set it back down, so that’s, one and one two and two three and three four and four five and five six and six seven and seven. We’re, almost there, eight and eight nine and nine and ten and ten and hold your forward fold for deep breath in and out, and that is how i warm up for my stretching practices.
