Set the Tone For Your Practice with an Efficient 5 Minute Dynamic Warm-Up
The first 5 minutes of practice are the most important, regardless of sport, age, or level.
Your approach to warming up your athletes sets the tone for your entire practice.
If your warm-up is organized, deliberate, and productive, your athletes will be able focus their mind and body for practice or a game.
If your warm-up is a few laps, some stretches, and an opportunity for your athletes to socialize as they go through some motions, then you might as well have lost the first 15 minutes of practice. (Poof!)
Good Warm-Ups = Good Practices
An effective warm-up not only reduces the likelihood of injury, but it also directly impacts an athletes ability to perform to their maximum potential.
So, how can you ensure a productive warm-up?
We’ve come up with a tool for busy (but dedicated) coaches:
The secret to fitting in meaningful warm-ups into your practices is efficiency.
We feel that our Warm-Up Stations model is highly effective for youth athletes & coaches.
Here’s the big picture: Each 5 minute dynamic warm-up routine consists of 5 exercise stations, the kids move from station to station following the exercise posters.
Kids can move at their own pace and begin right away when they arrive to maximize productivity.
That means that you can carve out a few more focused minutes of individualized instruction as the kids complete the warm-up circuit.
Say goodbye to kids standing around waiting for teammates or kids goofing off and causing trouble before practice begins.
25 Printable Exercise Posters
We’ve selected 25 dynamic warm-up exercises specifically designed for youth athletes.
Each exercise has a companion printable poster for you to post & the kids to reference.
There is an illustration of the exercise, along with a full written description and coaching tips.
That means that kids can quickly glance at the poster and know exactly what they are supposed to be doing at any given station. (no standing around!)
25 Expertly Designed Dynamic Warm-Up Routines
Each warm-up routine is comprised of 5 exercises that go in a specific progression.
In addition to the individual workout posters, we also provide one-page "at a glance" warm-up routine printable for all 25 warm-up sequences.
Each One-Page Printable Routine includes pictures of 5 warm up exercises, and a recommended rep count that will result in a 5 minute warm-up.
Here are a handful of ways you can use these printable Warm-Up Routines:
- Individual Warm-Up Stations: Set up 5 stations using the warm-up routines and as your guide. As the athletes arrive, direct them to move through the posted warm-up routine.
- Warm-Up As a Group: If you prefer your athletes to warm up as a group, simply use the exercise posters and warm-up routines as your coaching cheat-sheets and direct your athletes to move through the exercises as a team. Many coaches have success giving one of the warm-up routines to a team captain or veteran player as a guide for them to use as they lead the group.
- Warm-Up Handouts: Most youth athletes don’t warm-up when they practice on their own time, usually because they aren’t sure what exercises to do! Encourage athletes to get into the habit of warming up by distributing one of the warm-up routines as a handout at practice.
Just like the printable posters- print as many one-page routines as you need, year after year!
