Best Ways to Warm up before a run


Do Dynamic Stretches

Stretches before running can improve performance while doing physical activity. To get the most out of your run do some quick stretches and exercises such as hacky sack, butt kicks, backward job, and side shuffle.

You can also do reverse plunges and burpees to stimulate the blood vessels in your body. Such exercises can also raise your heartbeat so you can begin the cardio. Avoid high-impact exercises if you have a history of developing muscle aches and injuries.

Slow Running

Many racers skip the stretches and the exercise altogether before running. Instead, they start with slow running or fast walking for 5-10 minutes to stimulate the muscles. If you are new to this, you can write it off with slow and gentle walking. Experts say that a simple walk can help raise the body temperature that prepares your muscles, engages your core, and increases the blood flow, which can send a message to your brain that the body is ready for some fast running.

Jumping Jacks

Jumping rope or doing jumping jacks can instantly raise your heartbeat and improve the blood supply to the muscles around the body. The best thing about this cardio exercise is that it is easy and quick. If your knees are healthy and you don’t mind doing some high-impact jumping jacks, do at least 2 sets of 15 reps each before you start running. When your body is warm and you can feel the energy, you are ready to pound the pavement.
