Exercising Made Easy

Why do you need to warm up before exercises ?

Warm-up exercises are important to all workouts. Preparing all your joints and muscle for increasing intense activity helps prevent injury, as well as promoting circulation. Warm-up exercises increase the temperature of the body, making the muscles more flexible. Many athletes and experts will always participate in a warm up before intense activity. While warming up your heart rate should not be the most intense part of the workout but only a slight increase of heart rate. Intense stretching is often listed as the priority in ones workout.

I’m going to go through a very great routine for you guys, which I have personally used from the start of my exercising career. It is a great routine developed by the 8 minute workout crew featuring: abs, legs, buns and arms although we will be going though the 8 minute stretch routine
