  1. Comprehensive Warm-Up Exercises For Cardio Workout Having your muscles fully prepared for the workout you wish to follow is of utmost importance. I’ve decided to enlist warm-up exercises that will be ideal to start before a cardio workout. I always place heavy emphasis on warm-up exercises before escalating towards high-intensity workouts. Why I say this is because, if you give warm-up exercises a miss, you get more prone to incurring displeasure in the form of injuries. I always suggest starting with easy to follow warm-up exercises to maximize your performance during workouts. Here’s how you should be starting your cardio workout:– (1) Foam Rolling (Glutes):- Massage your glute muscles by simply sitting on the foam roller. Rollback and forth over the muscle by crossing one leg over the other. Why I recommend this is because tight glutes can cause pain in your hips and back. This one minute stretch will ensure you don’t develop any pain after workouts. (2) Four-Point Thoracic Rotation:- Set up on all fours with your hands flat on the ground, keep your knees shoulder-width apart. Raise one hand and slide it along the floor. Reach as far as possible and repeat it with the other hand. Maintain a neutral spine during this warm-up exercise. This exercise is particularly good to get relief from pain and stiffness in the mid-back, shoulders, and neck. It is a must- do warm-up exercise if you find yourself slouched in one position for long hours. (3) Four-Point Arm & Leg Extension:- This exercise is most recommended to develop a strong core, settle on all fours on a yoga mat. Place your knees below your hips and hands below your shoulder. Set your spine in a neutral position and raise your right hand and left leg so that they are in line with your spine. The hips and shoulder must be parallel to the floor. Return to the original position and raise your left hand and right leg so that they are in line with the spine. The hips and shoulder should be parallel to the floor at all times, return to the original position and repeat the exercise for each side six times. (4) Arm Swing:- Place your arms by your sides, plant both your feet on the ground at shoulder-width apart. Swing your arms gently forwards and across your body. Swing both arms backward reaching as far as possible. Continue alternating forwards and backward for one minute. (5) Butt Kicks:- This is a popular and easy to do warm-up exercise, start by planting both feet on the floor at shoulder-width apart. Keeping weight on the left leg, raise your right foot to your glutes, lower your right leg then and place your foot on the floor. Next, keeping your weight on the right leg, lift your left foot to your glutes. Increase your speed gradually making a hopping action from left foot to the right foot. Continue for one minute. I believe these exercises to bring rhythm in your body to carry out an intense cardio session. These warm-up sessions ensure you gain without avoidable pain.
