The Warmup That Primes Your Chest, Back, and Shoulders For Peak Performance

Dec 12 / Build Muscle

Before your next upper-body workout, you’re going to want to do this warmup from Men’s Health Fitness Director B.J. Gaddour.

It supersets bear crawl variations with exercises like the TRX face pull, pulldown, raises, and rows.


The result: a 6 to 10-minute warmup that floods your chest, back, and shoulder muscles with blood so they’re ready to work at peak performance.

It also bulletproofs your joints by targeting the smaller muscles around your shoulder blades and shoulder capsules, so your workout is more effective and injury-free.

Watch Gaddour demonstrate all the moves in the video above. Then bookmark this page for your next chest or back day.
