Even the most dedicated exercisers often underestimate the importance of a proper warm up and cool down - both are critical to an effective fitness program. Warm ups prepare your muscles for exercise by raising your body temperature, increasing heart rate, and encouraging blood flow to the muscles. Simply stated, a warm muscle is ready and able to work! Proper cool down will decrease heart rate and blood pressure gradually which is healthier for your cardiovascular system. Skipping the cool down phase increases your chances of experiencing dizziness, light-headedness, and even fainting.
