Your Warm-Up Sucks
Too many athletes walk in the gym, load up the bar and get straight to work. But as you start to develop strength and the weights start to increase, warming up properly should be an essential part of your training routine. Foam rolling or other myofascial release, dynamic warm-up , activation drills and sub-maximal specific warm-ups should all be used prior to your first work set. Your training session will be much more effective and beneficial and your chances of pulling a cold muscle will be eliminated.
