Thanks for the great article. The info was great. I was always told to stretch before exercising.

Huh. The more you know. ^^; I thought I knew exactly what warming up should involve but turns out I wasn't quite right! Happy to learn this though, because maybe if I start doing it correctly I will see some improvements! (Will report back in a week to let you all know.)

Yes, this is helpful, I always stretched, then ran. This explains why I couln't get a good rununtil my body warmed up during my run, but I would get tired early and hurt later! I jump rope 10 minutes then run, strength train, cool and stretch, and it felt much better! Great article!

My pup stretches just as she's getting out of her dog bed. So I think stretching and a few breaths would be good as a warm-up.

THis article is very illustrative, but I would like to know to learn a couple of warm-up routines and I can't find any, at least on this site.

This is a very interesting article. I always thought that you should stretch before doing any type of exercise and that stretching was the same as warming up.

Talk about going backwards!!! Thankx for this article.
I was stretching BEFORE warm up.

Sooo I guess dancing then walking instead of walking then dancing.
Dancing then housework..I will try this.

Glad I read this article, I never thought warm up and stretching were completely different. Now I know I have to do both.

Physically limited people needs to read this article. The warm up in physical Therapy is stretching...There are other ways inwhich physically limited people can do as a warm-up. I will try this new approach to a warm up and see what happends.
