Exercise has become something of an art form blended with science over the years! Good form, posture, breathing techniques – it’s all very precise but done well flows naturally. However, to keep fit, healthy and to protect your body from injury, you are going to need to make sure you follow safety guidelines to ensure you’re future-proofing your fitness. For example, did you know how easy it is to suffer a pulled muscle, joint pain or neck pain just from failing to warm up properly?
For some people, stretching and warming up can seem like a little bit of a waste of time. However, any sporty person will tell you that this really isn’t the case and in fact, as we get older it becomes even more essential to good outcomes and enjoyment. I believe Ryan Giggs puts his long career down to taking up Ballet as he got older to keep him mobile and well-tuned... Let’s take a look at why warming up before exercise is so important, and why it’s necessary to do it right.
