Warm-Up for AFL

Before performing any exercise, it is important to prepare the body by performing an appropriate warm up. Warming up prepares the body for sport performance and can help decrease the risk of injury. The warm up for Aussie Rules should be done before every exercise session - whether it be competition games, on the oval for training sessions, or gym workouts.

Example Football Game Warm-Up

A game of footy involves extended periods of running at a range of intensities, from short sprints and continuous running. The movements can involve explosive jumping and rapid change of direction. To get the body prepared for such activities, a thorough warm-up is required. Here is an example of what can be done, but the specifics can be adjusted to suit constraints such as limited space and time, and the conditions.
