Warming up before a run is a topic of hot debate among the running community. We can't provide a definitive answer here either, since scientists have not provided any clear recommendations.

One thing is certain: When you begin a run without warming up first, your body is still in idle mode. This isn't ideal for performance.

Our advice: Try some warm-up exercises before your next run and see how this affects your training. Compare this with a day when you didn't do any warm-up exercises before running.

Warm up without tiring yourself out

The aim of warming up before a jog is to achieve physiological benefits without tiring out the muscles. The following four pre-run warm-up exercises are designed to:

  • warm up the gluteal muscles
  • warm up the thigh muscles
  • Bicycle crunch
  • Bulgarian split squat | one-legged squats

Warm up exercises before running

Warm up before running and loosen your gluteal muscles.
