In a video warming up her shoulder muscles, fitness model Krissy Cela shared some valuable workout wisdom with her Instagram following on Thursday.
Dressed in a black sports bra and powder blue leggings, the brunette beauty started the workout with a series of shoulder dislocations using a long black resistance band. This exercise required her to repeatedly lift the resistance band behind her back, rotating her shoulder joint in the process. Then she moved on to doing upright rows during which she lifted the band to her chin with the other end of it beneath both of her feet. Shoulder rotations came next which were followed by depressions. This latter exercise meant that she had to pull the resistance band down, positioning it behind her head.
In the caption, Krissy stressed the importance of doing warm-up exercises, calling it the “most important aspect of training.” Krissy revealed that she thinks of it as an alarm clock for her muscles to let them know she’s about to work out. She also mentioned their importance in protecting the body from injury and muscle strain.
As of this writing, the video has accumulated more than 17,000 likes and over 180 Instagram users have commented on it. In those comments, fans thanked her for the warm-up demonstration
“YES TO THIS,” one person wrote. “Shoulders always always need waking up.”
“Good motivation for my shoulders as my not fav to exercise,” another added.
Others asked her to upload more warm-up demonstrations that target other areas of the body like the back.
Others used the post as an opportunity to compliment Krissy.
“You look so pretty even when you work out,” a third commenter remarked.
“You look so pretty in this. Not that you don’t always. There’s just something special about this,” a fourth person gushed.

Wow sorry about the dramatic title but its my responsibility to drill the importance of WARMING UP and ACTIVATION❗️I cannot stress enough that THEE MOST IMPORTANT aspect of training is to adequately warm up before going into a workout. You will thank yourself for taking an extra 5 minutes to really active your muscles prior to an intense workout.
