THIS WEEK’S “ASK GILAD” BLOG

Question: What types of exercise require a warm-up and can you explain what a warm-up consists of?

Answer: No matter what physical activity you are about to perform it is always important to start with a general warm-up. A general warm-up should start with some short easy aerobics to raise your heart rate and get your blood circulating. These aerobics should consist of 3 to 5 minutes of light aerobic activity like marching or jogging in place, fast walking, low impact knee lifts, side stepping or any easy aerobics.
Then move on to more specific stretching exercises targeting the muscles you will be using in the sport or workout you are about to engage in.
A general warm-up will help you prevent injury and allow you to get a better overall workout. So, before you do any exercise, warm up!
