How to "Warm-Up" 

The best way to get prepped for a workout is likely different than you think.  If you think stretching your hamstrings is what you should be doing then I promise you’re missing the boat.  Take a look at these videos and notice the progression from simple to complex movement; it looks like the first year of a human life!  There is no better way to get prepped for swinging a golf club, lifting a weight, running, jumping, etc. than to build up to it--that’s how your body did it originally.  These moves are primal, natural, authentic, and absolutely necessary.  Mastering the movement patterns in these videos will establish a solid foundation that lowers your risk of injury and improves performance with your resulting workout...and just life in general.
