Warming Up and Stretching

Warm Up

Before you exercise, you should always warm up your body. When you warm up your body, you get your muscles and joints ready to exercise. Most people are warmed up when they begin to sweat and breathe more heavily.  Warming up makes your muscles more limber and decreases your chance of being injured during exercise.


When training for flexibility you should have already warmed up; you should never perform flexibility exercises when your muscles are cold. Once you have warmed up and are beginning to stretch, the proper form is to stretch until there is some tension on the muscle; do not bounce or try to reach repeatedly while holding a single stretch. When stretching you should reach and hold the stretch while maintaining the proper position for each specific stretching activity. Following are listed a few examples of flexibility exercises.
