WHAT IS THE VALUE OF WARM-UP

WHAT IS THE VALUE OF WARM-UP? A WARM-UP SERVES TO INCREASE BODY AND MUSCLE TEMPERATURES, WHICH INCREASES BLOOD FLOW AND MAKES MORE OXYGEN AVAILABLE TO THE MUSCLES. BY WARMING UP, YOU REDUCE THE LIKELIHOOD OF INJURIES TO MUSCLES AND JOINTS AND LESSEN THE DANGER OF INADEQUATE BLOOD FLOW TO THE HEART. A WARM-UP ALSO ‘FOCUSES ‘ THE ATHLETE TO PERFORMING PSYCHOLOGICALLY IN HIS PRE-MATCH HABITS. AFTER A WARM-UP YOU ARE NOW READY FOR STRETCHING. A VERY GOOD PRE-MATCH HABIT FOR BETTER PERFORMANCE. AFTER, THE MATCH A COOL DOWN ALLOWS THE BODY AND PULSE TO RETURN TO ITS STARTING CONDITION BY DECREASING THE BODY TEMPERATURE GRADUALLY. IT ALSO IMPROVES CIRCULATION AND REDUCES MUSCULAR TENSION AND THE CHANCE OF MUSCULAR SORENESS. I’D RECOMMEND A COMBINATION OF JOGGING SLOWLY AND PERFORMING STRETCHING EXERCISES FOR 10 MINUTES BEFORE AND AFTER YOUR MATCH.
