Core activation is an important part of warming up for physical training in the gym and for different sports as well. Often times warm ups can get stale and boring, especially if you’re repeating the same on every session. Here are 8 examples of warm up exercises that you can add into you routine to warm up different aspects of the core.

Benefits Of Warm Ups

1. Neuromuscular Activation

The ability for your brain to send signals to the muscles that are being utilised during the session is improved by performing a thorough warm up.

2. Increasing Body Temperature

Although this sounds obvious, it’s actual an often forgotten about aim of the warm up, this increase in body temperature will be beneficial to the session you’re about to perform.

3. Improving Focus and Concentration

Entering direct into a training session can be very challenging mentally. The warm up can be a bridge from the rest of your day and all the other things going on in your life to the act of physical training. This bridge is an extremely important part of a well executed session.
