Usually I go to the “functional” area for my warm-up and he goes right into the weight area for a chest and arms, or legs and back, or shoulders and ears workout. But this time, as I went to warm-up he said he would come stretch too. I tried really hard not to stop in my tracks from the shock. Great! We Vainos are not what you’d call a flexible bunch, which in my opinion means it is really important for us to do a proper warm-up.
I think the notion of intensity is one of the most misunderstood aspects of training, and that this is particularly true for beginners and those who have injuries or are returning to activity post-injury.
