6 Warm-Up Moves For Runners

Avoid injury, perform better and feel better too, with these six warm-up moves for runners.
Have you ever just started running and thought “Agh, I feel terrible!”. It takes the body some time to warm up and if you start running immediately (without a warm-up), your body will often feel tight or stiff and you may hurt yourself.

Warming up areas of the body pre-run will help improve how you feel on the run as well as your performance. As a runner and a yoga instructor, I really feel the benefits of doing these 6 moves before running.
This is a quick warm-up routine that will take you less than four minutes.

  1. Ankle Rolls
  2. Figure-4 Hip Rotations
  3. Leg swings
  4. Cross Knees
  5. & 6 Bum Kicks and High Knees
