Cooling down after any kind of exercise is just as important as the exercise itself, reducing the chance of injury, muscle cramps and helping to keep your body in check. So, when you’ve finished working out, take a moment to cool down.
Helps rid the body of lactic acid build-up.
Lowers your heart and breathing to a normal resting level at a gradual pace.
Prepares your body for your next exercise session.
Helps to prevent muscle injury.
Your blood is properly redistributed throughout your body.
And here’s how:
Do low-intensity exercise for five to 10 minutes.
Stretch the key muscles that have been used, staying in the stretch for 20 to 30 seconds.
Allow 10 minutes of stretching time.
Do two things at once: stretch your arms while stretching your legs.
It’s paramount to remember that you should always make time allowances in your pre-workout regime and post-workout care to warm up and cool down. And your body would agree with us too!
