Consider adding dynamic warm-up stretching
If you don’t have a morning routine, GET-ONE. Seriously, my morning routine is like my “Samson-Hair“. It includes coffee, warm-up, workout, stretch, more coffee, then real world stuff! 🙂
Healthybutsmart.com has a great article that dives DEEEEP into all different types of stretches. They actually did real academic-type research! I just fired up “my google machine” and asked what the difference between the two types are. Thanks for the info Healthybutsmart.com! Please check their site out! They have great articles, tips, and information.
As far as stretching goes, there are some different opinions about what is right. It seems like more research is needed to draw medical conclusions about injury prevention.
The Formula That Works For Me
Dynamic warm-up + Workout + Static Stretch = minimal soreness + ability to workout every day
I start with a dynamic warm-up, then I do a regular workout, then I do static stretching or “yoga-type” stretching. The result is that I workout every day and have minimal soreness.

In addition to good workout stuff, Shane and the FightTips team will teach you how to do just that with the great content on their channel. Please check them out!
This dynamic warm-up routine is the first thing… no wait, the first thing I do every day is brew a pot of coffee!
It’s the second thing… no, the second thing I do every day is chug a glass of water!
This warm-up routine is the third thing I do. Every-single-day.
I usually do about a 20-minute interval workout after that. This has become part of my daily routine. It gets me in the right mindset to have a good day. It also makes me feel good, helps me deal with stress, and helps me keep my sanity! 🙂
Heroes have morning routines. Batman told me! 🙂 Until next time, Be happy and healthy and be the hero in your story!
