Entry Coach: Applying Physical Preparation Opportunities in the Warm-up

A framework for structuring a warm-up that will meet the needs of the people you coach and improve physical fitness, alongside insight into its purpose and key features

The warm-up may be the first time that physical preparation is really considered in coaching practice. It usually involves participants doing something that prepares them for the session they're about to undertake. This guide considers the purpose of a warm-up and its key features, providing a framework to help you structure an effective and purposeful warm-up.

But first, why warm up?

  1. To reduce the likelihood of injury.
  2. To make the most of the session.
  3. To explore physical development opportunities.
