Plus-Size Fitness Excerpt from Don't Weight

Warm-Up: More Information

Warm-ups should be rhythmic movements that use similar muscle groups as your activity will use.

Sample warm-ups:

  • Five minutes of regular walking is a warm-up for aerobic walking, treadmill, or stair climbing.
  • Five minutes of easy swimming is a warm-up for exercise swimming.
  • Five minutes of ANY rhythmic movement at lower intensity is a good warm-up for that particular activity at higher intensity.

When you warm-up, you should start out breathing gently and gradually increase your breathing. If you are a small person, you will move more in order to get your breathing and heart rate up. If you are a large person, remember that you are doing weight training every time you move. Respect the work your body is doing. You may need to start out very slowly in order to have an effective warm-up. If you are just starting to get fit, you may need to walk very slowly for your warm-up and walk at a medium pace for your workout. Listen to your own body by noticing your breathing. Listen to your own internal pacing. Do not strive for some specific speed or try to keep up with anyone else.
