Warming up before you hit the dance floor is a no brainer but don’t let it slip your mind before you go wild to the music!
That’s it. That’s the protip.
You’ll be walking A LOT from the time you walk out of your hotel room door until you finally walk back in the next morning and of course dancing and bouncing around a lot in between. After you walk through the gates just start doing some jumping jacks or skipping towards the infield of the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. You don’t have to break out sweating but at least get your legs and muscles all moving after spending time sitting on a shuttle bus or in a car.
That’s all there really is to warming up. It’s just a matter of getting your muscles loosened up and ready for action. The last thing you want to do is pull a muscle 10 minutes into one of the first dj’s of the night. You can go nuts with arm and leg stretches but just make sure you don’t pull a muscle doing that either if you’re not used to all of that.
You may never think about warming up before a night out at your favorite club or a one night event but this is three nights of a festival. For many people it’s the most torture they’ll ever put their body through!!
If you have a steady workout routine you already know this. Thanks for reading though!
