Get Ready To Run With These 5 Dynamic Warm-Up Moves

Carioca (Grapevine)

Named for a Brazilian dance, this is another sideways movement. Step your right foot in front of your left, step out to the side with your left foot, cross your right foot behind your left foot and step out again with your left. Repeat this pattern while focusing on a good twisting stretch in your hips and core. Continue for about 20 to 40 yards. Switch sides and perform for about the same distance.
