Before any workout—and especially a high intensity one!—it’s important to prepare your body. Depending on the type of workout you’re about to do and any muscle imbalances or recovering injuries you have, a proper warm up will vary. In general though, you want to include some light-to-moderate cardio to gradually increase the heart rate and some dynamic (active) stretches for joint mobility.
This 5-minute warm up is made with the at-home workouts I post to my blog in mind. We’ll start with two minutes of cardio bodyweight exercises and then move onto active stretches for a functional range of motion.

IF YOU’RE LOOKING FOR A GENTLER WARM UP, I have a toned down version of this video. No jumping during the cardio and a slower allover pace: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fNJfhtfTJKY&feature=youtu.be
