Cool Down Versus Aerobic Cool Down

Question: What is the difference (if any) between an aerobic cool-down and a general cool-down?

 

 

 

 

Answer: The cool-down routine is designed to allow your heart rate to gradually decrease after aerobic exercise. This routine is important for the health of your heart and will also actively stretch some of the muscles used during exercise.
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.
