Warming Up for Fitness and Exercise
It important to warm up properly when exercising or running, Without
a proper warm up session, you will be at risk from pulling muscles
and other injury. Warm up is telling your body to expect some strenuous
exercise, and preparing your muscles in a controlled way, so they
are not suddenly overloaded.
Don't rush the warm up process. When you're keen to start exercising, warming up can be seen as something that gets in the way of 'proper' exercising. You must adopt the thinking that your exercise session has started as soon as you begin to warm up.
Design your warm up routine according to your exercise program for that day, and you will have a complete, focused exercise session that is safe and delivers full benefits.
