Warm up: Prepare for physical performance by practicing gently beforehand ( Increase body temperature ).
Flexibility: The quality of bending easily without breaking ( Stretching ).
Stretching is not a warm up. Warm up is literally the process of increasing your core body temperature. It’s very important that you perform a general warm up before you stretch. Cold muscles don’t stretch very well, so don’t try to do so if you are not warmed up, to avoid injuries.
What to do?
- 50 Jumping Jacks.
- 1 minute running in place ( Knees up to waist level ).
- Neck Rotations ( Very gently ).
- Shoulder Rotation ( Forward and backward ).
- Hip Rotation ( clockwise and counterclockwise ).
- 50 push ups.
- 50 sit ups ( Abs ).
Remember warm up and stretch before starting your training. Warm muscles do not get injured.
