Rock Drumming Masterclass:

When you’re on the road for eight months a year and play upwards of 150 shows as Todd Sucherman does, it’s crucial to have a warm-up routine that helps you stay loose and avoid injuries. If you hop behind the kit and go from zero to one-hundred without any preparation, you’re gonna have a bad time.

During our Day In The Life video shoot with Todd, we got to see exactly how Todd warms up before going on stage. He goes over the rudiments he primarily focuses on, as well as hand to foot combinations that ensure all four limbs are relaxed and ready to rip.
