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.

When it comes to creative ways to work the body, one athlete always comes to mind: Marcus Filly. Aside from knowing how to stay shredded with bodybuilding, he’s also a pro at warming up the body. Recently on Instagram, he shared one routine he likes to go through before he WODs that combines isometric exercises with more dynamic and jumping core work. His explanation for why he does this makes perfect sense, too. Check it out below!
