5-Minute Pilates Warm Up

Good Morning, Beauties!

Did you know that it’s not recommended to exercise first thing when hopping out of bed in the morning? 

Overnight, your synovial fluid (joint fluid) settles in your joints and needs a little time to re-circulate to support optimal movement. In addition, it’s good to get your blood flowing and your mind awake before diving into any kind of workout.

If you do enjoy morning workouts, give yourself 5-15 minutes to wake up, walk around the house and get your body ready for movement. 

And if you still feel like you need more time to warm up, you’ll love this video!

This Pilates warm-up is the perfect set of movements to warm up your spine, wake up your body, and mentally prepare for your workout.

Tag this on before completing a workout from my YouTube channel, before a run, after a walk, or any time your body needs a little boost!

Try this before your workout today and let me know how it goes…

I hope you find it helpful!


PS – My Pilates for Balance or Pilates-Inspired HIIT Workouts would be a great addition to this warm up –  and the perfect quick & effective workout combo for a busy day!
