Cool Down Versus Aerobic Cool Down
Question: What is the difference (if any) between an aerobic cool-down and a general cool-down?
Following an aerobic workout, whether it's walking, running, or high or low impact aerobics, it is necessary to continue working aerobically at a significantly reduced level to allow your heart rate to come down slowly. This is what is known as the aerobic cool-down. It should be followed by the general cool-down which stretches the major muscle groups.
