Warm Up Exercises Prevent Injury
Prepare your body for exercise

Warm up exercises should always be done before any type of exercise. Stretching the muscles increases blood flow,reduces the risk of injury and increases the enjoyment and benefit of your workout.

As trainer Steve Barrett says in this video, the purpose of a warm up is to work all the joints, increase the blood flow around the body and get some warmth into the muscles. Warm up exercises should work the whole body from top to bottom.

Warming up helps to guard against straining the muscles, tendons and ligaments - we need to protect ourselves from this as we get older and are less fit generally.

Not only does your body benefit from a warm up routine but you are also preparing yourself mentally for your work out. It's a good time to clear your mind and focus on performing the forthcoming work out exercises.

OK, so now you appreciate the importance of warming up the body before doing a workout. However, you may also find it useful to do if you are going to any other kind of strenuous activity such as gardening or some heavy duty house cleaning! I'm not trying to turn you into an athlete just help you to get the most out of life by being as fit and healthy as possible.
