Updated on June 4, 2016

Introduction

This weekly physical activities plan was designed, developed and executed by the author to enable him to accomplish his fitness goals. It is published for informational purposes only, not as a general physical training plan or exercise prescription.

General warm-up

Each training session commenced with a warm-up before the daily workout. This warm-up is needed to gradually prepare your body for more strenuous exercise. Approximately 10 minutes in length, the warm-up normally consists of 5 minutes of walking, mobility exercises (such as jumping jacks) plus light calisthenics.

Mobility exercises are included in warm-up periods.

Specific warm-up

Whereas the general warm-up's goal is to prepare the entire body for upcoming vigorous activity, the specific warm-up is functionally focused to prepare specific body parts for specific exercises.

One example of a specific warm-up occurs during a training session which includes weightlifting. One or more sets of relatively light weights will be conducted prior to working with heavier loads. This will be repeated for each separate lift.

Other example occurs prior to executing speed training. Prior to wind sprints, several running specific exercises, as well as, jogging and striding will be conducted.

Bounding and skipping drills are often conducted prior to wind sprints.
