You can not just get into training and expect to work like a superhero. Without a proper warm-up, you could do less than your best – or, worse, hurt yourself.
Do not skip the preparatory work. Before your next session, try this dynamic starter, the resisting marches of coach Don Saladino, who developed the training programs, the actors Ryan Reynolds and Sebastian Stan for their roles in Deadpool and Avengers .

"This exercise is also great for getting people in the right posture to warm up for sprint work," says Saladino. "They're working on mobility, a combination of power and flexibility, while the heart rate is set in motion."
To complete the step described by Saladino, you will need a number of Resistance Bands and a partner to hold them. If you do not have a workout partner on hand, you can attach a loop, such as a squat rack, to an anchor and then put it around your waist. If you need a fixed set of resistance bands, you should try this option from WODFitters.
- Loop the ribbon around your waist. Leave your partner behind and keep the band tight. They should put up some resistance by holding the band, but they should not actively pull and pull them back so they can not get any further. If you do not have a partner, go to your anchor to get the band strained.
- Start marching straight and focus on your form. Press your core together to keep your upper body upright and avoid bending too far forward or bending your spine.
- With your right knee up, swing your left hand like a sprinter, then place your right foot in the ground and swing your left arm back as you reverse the movement and walk with your left leg ,
March for 30 seconds or 40 meters to start. If you do not have a partner and your band is attached to an anchor, go to the expansion of the band and then return to the beginning. Hold it for 30 seconds.
