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.
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.
