WYSI[not]WYG + Dynamic Warmups
I’ve mentioned before that I always have dessert and/or a nighttime meal/snack a couple hours after dinner, but I should also mention that I have a snack in between each meal, too.
I ate my oatmeal around 7:30 before leaving for work this morning, but then when my tummy rumbled around 10:00, I answered it with a homemade cliff bar:
Today’s lunch incredibly simply, thanks to last night’s leftovers. One heated up black bean enchilada on top of a bed of greens, comin’ up (in 1:20, at that!)
And see after this meal and before I head in to train some clients, I’ll have another mini meal, like some Greek yogurt and cereal, most likely.
You don’t see the mini-meals in between meals because, well, I don’t always have my camera around, and I don’t enjoy posting every single meal and snack that I eat. I’ll post the exciting and different snacks, but I think everyone’s seen yogurt + granola by now. I also don’t post my seconds. Sometimes I’ll take a picture of what’s for dinner, and then fill up my plate again and eat twice what the picture shows.
My point, though, is that while I post my meals, I eat way more than just what I post. If a portion looks small or my meals seem few, it’s not the case in real life. In fact, Shane and I joke that I eat enough for the both of us! It’s all relative
I also always eat a mini-meal before morning workouts that typically misses the blog, but that’s not the only thing I do pre-workout. I also make sure to do a good 10 minute warm up.
Lately, I find that dynamic warm ups provide a lot more benefits than a walking treadmill. I actually made this video for my personal training website for my clients, but thought I’d also share it with you all! It tells why dynamic workouts can be an integral part of your training, and then shows some of my favorite dynamic warmup exercises.

LOL – how’s that for a screenshot? Thanks YouTube
Have a great afternoon, friends
How much effort do you put into your warm up? What does your warm up typically consist of?
