Today’s warm-up might seem a bit odd, but it will hit all the stabilizer muscles of the lower leg and hips. These guys can easily go undertrained but warming them up in a manner like we’re doing today ensures they get the care and attention they deserve. Now that we’re putting more miles on the trails, we can start to develop compensations and doing short warm-ups like this once or twice a week is all that’s needed to bring some balance back to the body.
