Warm Up and Cool Down

The weather is getting nicer and that means more outdoor activities and sports. Whether you are playing on an organized sports team, going for a leisurely run or bike ride, or playing backyard football, performing a proper warm up and cool down is a critical part of preventing injuries. Here is a basic warm up and cool down program that you can perform. Feel free to adapt this to be more activity specific, for example more arm movements if your activity is heavily arm dependent.
