Good morning all,
This is a topic that’s very, very important to me as I have neglected warmup exercises in the past and have paid the penalty. I have been known to skip warmup exercises in the past because I didn’t have the time, this is wrong on so many levels and I’ll explain why. Besides, who can’t spare five to ten minutes before a workout?
Did you know that fitness experts have proven that doing warmup exercise before a workout is like turning on the power to your muscles? Scientists believe that warmup exercises enhance the communication between your mind and your muscles. This allows you to hit peak performance in the gym, basically more muscle and faster fat loss. Sound good? I bet your listening now right?
We intend to produce a drop-down menu in the future called ‘Warmup Exercises’ and we’ll provide a library of movements you can perform before your workout routine. This library will help keep your body feeling and looking young while keeping you injury-free at the same time. Speaking from experience, I have suffered minor injuries in the past from not warming up or cooling down correctly. Cooling down after your workouts is just as important as warming up but we’ll touch on this topic at another time.
