Study Shows Importance of Pre-Run Warm-Up


Los Angeles, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/08/2014 -- There is new research that proves the benefit of adding weight to a pre-run warm-up. For many top runners, the warm-up actually looks like a full out workout. Sprinting, drills, and skipping are all used to warm-up.

A new study published in the Journal of Science and Medicine Sport, studied 11 well-trained distance runners throughout the warm-up and race sequence. Both runners did 10 minutes of jogging, a set of jumps, and another 5 minute run. One of the runners also wore a weighted vest.

Results of the study showed that race performance was 6% better when the weighted vest was worn during warm-up activity. As with all exercise regimens, consult a doctor or personal trainer before starting or changing a routine significantly.
