Pre match warm up

Recommended Posts

I try to walk around 1/2 hour-15 minutes before I'm on the line to "wake up" my body.Interested in what others do.

I dryfire for a few minutes, mostly focusing on accuracy rather than speed. working on grip and trigger pull. If it's cold out, i go for a jog until i'm warmed up and get the blood flowing to my hands.

At local matches, setting up the stages usually wakes my body up sufficiently.

Final setup in the morning of the local match does it for me, in fact, I'm very warm after that :). Before any match, try to look over my equipment first and function check everything. This turns into some dryfire and manipulation drills.

Morning setup if its my local match gets me warm enough. Ill stretch my legs out a bit before my first stage but that's about it.

Multi reps with coffee cup on the way, then quick reps before run with Red bull. I think there is validity in a pre match warm up but don't wanna get worn out before the match

CaptainOverkill isn't really living up to his username...

I stretch upper and lower body concentrating on shoulders/upper back and calves/hamstrings because that is what tends to cramp up for me.

Short dry fire session at home before leaving for a match, more dry fire in the gun handling area just before the match.  Some dry fire between stages.

 

Light lower body and core stretching can be done whenever there are a few free moments.

I do some jumping jacks or jump ropes, lunges, leg swings, bear crawl, push-ups, lots of stretches. 

 

Hwansik touched on this in his range diary.  Not something that I typically do but combined with some dryfire the morning of I could see this helping stage 1 jitters a lot.

I like to do simple stretches like you would in a high school gym class and do a few dryfire draws and transitions in the safe area

Helping setup for 45-60min more than warms me up.

Yeah, I help with set up at my 3 local clubs, so that warms me up.  

 

I do stretch a little before that first stage.  I’m a gym rat, so I’m usually pretty stiff from the previous days workout.
