The TREBEL Endurance Warm-up is a body weight warm-up that is a great and quick choice for preparing for endurance and/or squatting based activities.
The TREBEL Endurance Warm-up is a meticulously designed routine that serves to prepare the body for exercise while simultaneously enhancing hip, ankle, and thoracic spine mobility. Crafted with efficiency in mind, this warm-up is particularly valuable in situations where time and equipment are limited, making it a versatile choice for a variety of activities.
Components of the TREBEL Endurance Warm-up
1. Plank Lunge: Begin by assuming a high plank position, and then bring your left foot outside of your left hand. Execute circular movements with your hips in both clockwise and counterclockwise directions. Emphasize keeping your back leg as straight as possible. Repeat the sequence on your right side. This should be performed three times on each side.
2. Open Plank Lunge: Building upon the Plank Lunge, extend the routine by bringing your hands together behind your head after placing your foot next to your hand. Open up your chest, mimicking the posture of a standing lunge. Focus on pressing your hips forward and maintaining the straightness of your back leg. Similar to the Plank Lunge, perform this sequence three times on each side.
3. Plank Lunge Perfect Squat: Follow the steps of the Plank Lunge, and then, after placing your left foot next to your left hand, bring your right foot next to your right hand. Proceed to sink your hips, push your knees outwards, lift your chest and arms, and perform a perfect squat starting from the bottom squat position. Complete three repetitions in total.
