Warm up and Cool down

Warm up and Cool down | Improving Performance | Scoop.it

An appropriate warm up should prepare the body for physical activity. Warm up routines need to be specific to the nature of the sport. For example, a warm up for a game of touch needs to include running with changes of direction, forwards and backwards running and ball passing. A good warm up gradually prepares the body for the demands that will be faced during participation in the sport.

 

A cool down eases the body into recovery and reduces the severity of soreness. A cool down should not be as intense as a warm up.

 

Which type of stretching is most valid in the warm-up and the cool-down? How do you know when you have warmed - up?
