2. Warm Up the Right Way
Use your time wisely in the first five minutes of your workout. The more effective the warmup is, the more prepared your body will be for the exercise to follow—and that can make you feel stronger.
Pick movements with a large range of motion that mimic the exercises you are about to do in the rest of the workout—for example, light activity on an elliptical machine or brisk walking and jogging before a run.
Reduce stiff muscles with active stretching that keeps your body moving. Save static stretching (where you hold the stretch without moving) for after the workout (see tip 5).
