  • 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.) - 8/16/2012 11:25:58 AM

  • 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! - 3/28/2011 8:26:35 AM
    GETINLINE - Right On! I love dancing as my favorite exercise. - 1/19/2010 9:22:15 AM
    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. - 1/19/2010 9:21:04 AM

    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. - 11/16/2009 10:07:20 AM
    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. - 10/29/2009 11:11:23 AM
  • 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. - 10/2/2009 7:56:04 AM

  • 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. - 3/27/2009 8:52:40 AM
