It’s Getting Cold Out, Don’t Forget to Warm Up Before Exercise




Warming up prior to exercise is extremely important to avoid injury. Having an injury occur is never a pleasant experience and one that you want to avoid. In addition, you will be able to benefit more from warming up prior to exercise. Reasoning for more benefits include changes for increased strength and/or increased calories burned. This occurs due to your body being properly ready for the activity in which you are about to start.


Warming up your muscles before your workout helps your muscles adjust to the exercises that you'll be doing, and it's a great way to slowly increase your heart rate. Your warm-up could include taking a brisk walk or bike ride or simply marching or jogging in place, or doing jumping jacks for one to three minutes prior to exercise is extremely important to avoid injury.

Without the warm-up, your stretching may result in injury when you try to stretch tight muscles. Your warm-up can be a brisk walk or other brief aerobic exercise, or a combination of light aerobic exercise and light weight training such as lifting a 5-pound dumbbell. The important part of any warm-up is to get your heart pumping a little faster than baseline and your blood flowing.

To increase your strength, you need to push your muscles to work past their comfort zone. Generally speaking, the harder you push your muscles, the stronger they will become. Similarly, you must overstretch to a certain extent to increase your flexibility. This is one of the very many reasons why warming up is so important.


Stay safe this Winter, and don't forget to warm up before exercise.
