Stay Ready Warm Up / Prehab Program

I’ve dealt with my fair share of injuries, aches, pains, and annoyances and it’s always felt very overwhelming to look at all the different exercises that I should be doing to keep these annoyances from developing into something more serious.

That’s where this program comes into play.

I’ve developed this program with the help of various PTs I’ve worked with over the years and it's meant for both beginner and seasoned athletes who want to stay in the game and avoid the nagging injuries that training can bring on.

This is exactly what I find most accessible and what is easily integrated into my training.

**This is exactly what works for me. **

Each warm-up consists of a “mobility flow” followed by more focused, “traditional” PT exercises.

You’ll go through the flow 1-2x and then complete the prescribed movements before moving on to your training.

**This is how I start every training session. **

This program does not include any barbell-specific warmups for the snatch, clean and jerk, or squat and is an “add-on” to your current programming, and takes roughly 20-30 minutes.

If you're wanting to take care of your body and STAY READY, you're in the right place.

Stay on the Platform
I've learned the hard way, and over years, how to take care of my body so I'm pain free and able to train my ass off day-in and day-out. By adding this program to the beginning of your current training program, you'll stay on the platform, field, court, or wherever it is that you're performing.

Stay on YOUR Training Plan
I designed this plan so that you can add this to any training plan. It's not intended to tax your nervous system, fatigue you, or take away from anything that you're already slated to do in your training.

Simple + Effective
I keep things simple by focusing on a a few movements that will make a difference in how you feel and how you feel in your training.

So I’m Jes! I’m from Philadelphia (born and raised) and I’m an Olympic Weightlifter in the 71kg class. When I’m not at the gym I'm probably at the park with my perfect golden retriever, Finn, or binging some show on Netflix. I graduated with a degree in Psychology. For now, I spend most of my time working hard, lifting heavy, and loving life.

FAQs
Which day of the week should I start the program?
I wrote this program to start on a Monday, making your rest days Thursday and Sunday. You don't NEED to follow that format, but that's what I had in mind when I designed it. Through the app, you can always change your start/end date too!
Is there anything else that I should be aware of before I get started?
I do have my USAW-L1 and have experience coaching, but I'm not a doctor. The training, the movement selection, volume, etc. is all based on my own personal experience and what's worked for me in my training. Although I have confidence in how effective it will be for you, use your best judgement.
