The One Exercise You Should Do Before Every Single Workout

Warmups are important. They improve your range of motion, reduce your risk of injury, and prime your muscles so that you can perform at your absolute best.

Men’s Health Fitness Director B.J. Gaddour calls it “The One Mobility Move to Rule Them All.” And he’s not kidding.

The mobility movement also activates the small – but key – stabilising muscles in your core and shoulders, turns on your glutes, and gets your blood pumping, he explains. 

Do it for 2 to 5 minutes before your next workout. However, if you’re super tight, increase the time to 5 to 10 minutes.
