Warm Up And Cool Down


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

Even when I am rushed for time I always try to do a warm up prior to exercise and a cool down after. I used to think they were optional but now I realize the importance of preparing the body for exercise, physically and psychologically, and returning it to normal after and the sessions go much better when I follow those guidelines. It also makes stretching at the end easier.

    This is very important. Sometimes I forget & I have a lot of pain.
