Turning Warm-up into Workout
There are people out there who are way too into stretching. Not intense Pilates stretches or yoga just 25 degree leans to either side while watching the gym TV. In between these stretches, and during commercial breaks, you can spot them meticulously towelling off and refreshing with massive slugs from their water bottles. Finally “loose” after a half hour, they hit the stationary bike for about 7 minutes before calling it a day. Simply being at the gym for a long time does not equate to working out for a long time. If your warm-up time exceeds your workout time, you haven’t really worked out.
