Warming Up Before Physical Activity

Share

The best way to warm up the body is to simply start gradually. As a runner for example, the individual can start with a slower running pace per mile for the first 10 minutes, gradually increasing the speed. The same can be done with cycling. The individual can take their average pace and progressively add 30%. By doing this, the body can slowly become accustomed to any fitness activity being performed. As a golfer, the individual can begin warming up by using half swings for the first 10 balls and gradually open up the swing. As a tennis player, running several laps around the court can serve as a warm up as well as get the athlete used to the surface of the courts.

Prior to starting any routine requiring physical exertion, make sure to consult a specialist to discuss an appropriate set of work-outs as well as a proper warm up set of stretches and exercises for each specific sport or physical activity. Warming up the body before exercise is important in order to avoid injury and other complications.

Warming up before any type of sport or physical activity is essential in order to avoid injury or other complications. A fitness specialist can help determine the appropriate exercise routine specific to each individual to achieve their ideal fitness goals. Starting out your regular work-out routine slowly though and gradually increasing the speed can also be a good warm up routine.
