Warm up exercises

Here's a warm up routine for you to follow before using our other exercise videos and fact sheets.

In a warm up you should feel yourself getting warmer but you shouldn’t be out of breath. It allows the circulation of blood to increase and gives you a chance to prepare your body with some mobility exercises, to lubricate joints.

To practise these exercises, you can follow the video above, or download the accompanying fact sheet.

What you need

All movements can be performed standing or sitting. If you struggle with balance or want to perform any of these exercises seated, you’ll need an armless chair.
