Benefits of Warm Up

Warm-up and cool down are done by most athletes before or during their training regims. The main reason for doing warm up is to increase the blood flow to the working muscles which results in decreased muscle stiffness, this increases flexibility of the important working muscles. So one’s preformance can be increased and risk of injury is minimum.

Warm up also has one more important benefit, the physiological and psychological effects for a athlete. A warmed muscle has increased temperatures thus procviding more elasticity to the muscles to make them to contract more forcefully and relaxe more quickly, which ultimately results in increased speed and strength.

It also reduces the resistance of the blood flow to all parts of our body, lowering stress on the heart.

One should wear the correct apparels and accessories which will not distrub your warm up or training regim.

By activating the heat-dissipation (efficient sweating) mechanisms in the body,  an athlete can cool efficiently before-hand and help prevent overheating early in the event or race which can also have an negative impact on one’s sport.

Before starting off the warm up keep in mind that the perfect warm up is a very individual process that comes only through practice, experimentation and experience. One should try warming up in various ways, intensities and levels until which works best for you.
