Importance of a warm up 11 🏃🏼
A warm up simply means preparing the body for physical activity. A warm up should be specific to the muscles and energy systems your training. The type of stretching used should also be specific to the sport/exercise being undertaken!
Benefits of a warm up:
#Gradually increases body temperature
#Gradually increases heart rate and breathing rate
#Increases temperature of working muscles
#Prepares the neuromuscular system making it more effective at recruiting motor units for a more efficient muscle contraction
#Increased blood flow to working muscles
#Can help prevent injury
