It’s all too easy to get stuck in the same repetitive warm-up, even though different WODs might call for different preparation. Also, our bodies change over time — and thus, our needs. Are you stuck in a warm-up rut? Remember: an insufficient warm-up could be to blame for poor mobility, a lack of power and explosiveness and inconsistent lifts that feel disconnected.
