In order to get a great workout and reduce your risk of injury, a proper workout requires 4 stages. The four stages are warm-up, stretching, workout and cool down. Properly warming up and cooling down when you exercise will protect your muscles, ligaments and joints.
Call to Action:
- Warming-up your muscles for 6 to 10 minutes can assist you in creating an effective workout and reduce your risk of injury. Walking, easy jogging or cycling are good ways to warm up your muscles.
- It is important to cool down and lower your heart rate after exercising. Some simple ways to cool down are slow walking or cycling for 5 minutes or until your breathing is normal and your heart rate is under 100 beats per minute.
