We've come a long way since diving into a workout cold and have progressed beyond the thought process of performing long-winded static stretching before training, but what if I told you you could crush your warm-ups with blazing speed in a way that cuts out the nonsense and prioritizes the areas that actually reduce injury and even improve performance after. We bring your The DISTRICT iRAMP protocol, which we use to prepare all of our clients for training.
While we aren't reinventing the wheel, the wheel has evolved drastically over the centuries progressing from chiseled stone to wooden wagon wheels (cue Darius Rucker theme music) to the Pirelli P Zero performance tires that keep Formula One cars glued to the streets. The iRAMP Protocol is our grade A rubber of warm-ups that blends neuroscience with your traditional routine to optimize movement and maximize output.
Whether you are warming up for a sports performance workout, sprinting or powerlifting SBD (Squat/Bench/Deadlift) Day, the primary goals of a warm-up remain consistent and should be achieved without significant fatigue so you are not taking away from your actual workout. Above all we want to come out of this with our tissue/core temperature raised, however, we have organized each goal in a specific order to enhance the outcome of the next goal:
Inhibit limiting musculature.
Raise tissue/core temperature.
Activate specific musculature and Mobilize movement range.
Prime nervous system for performance.
