Why should you warm-up before training?

Exercise or training can be walking, jogging, cycling, running, swimming, aerobics, or take the form of any sport. Training can be strengthening or building muscles and losing weight or maintenance and having a good cardiovascular system; any physical activity that helps to maintain or enhance physical fitness and health. Nowadays there are many programs on exercise and training both online and out in the real world to encourage people to maintain their bodies and their health.

Warm-up is done before doing exercise or training and it is key to exercise safely and effectively. Generally, it takes 5 to 10 minutes to warm-up and breathing should be a little quicker than the normal.

  • It helps to regulate the hormonal changes responsible for energy production.
  •  It improves coordination.
  • It increases the blood temperature and prepares you mentally for extra workouts.
  • It prepares your muscles to stretch.
