Here is a quick dynamic warm-up that you can try before your next run or workout to get your body prepared for the upcoming bout of exercise. In the video, Julia, a D1 runner, used a foam roller for about 15 minutes prior to the start of the video. Her goal was to “release” specific areas that were tight in her lower extremity resulting from a previous run. You have the option of going through these specific movements more than once if needed. Following the dynamic warm-up, she went for her run and then hit the foam roller once again before calling it a day. Try 5-6 repetitions of each dynamic movement.
