Are you in a hurry? Just like your car
needs time to warm up on these cold
mornings so does your body. Fitting in 5
to 10 minutes of a warm-up before you
workout is important for many reasons:
Warming up lubes you up. A lubricat-
ing liquid called synovial fluid
(hyaluronic acid) is excreted from thin
membranes in some joints in your body
such as your knees. This fluid helps to
reduce friction. Giving this slippery sub-
stance time to do its job can make your
workout much more comfortable, espe-
cially for those who suffer from arthritis.
Warming up helps you reach your
maximum potential during your work-
out. Giving blood vessels time to dilate
allows for more oxygen and glucose
from the blood stream to reach those
tired muscles so you can get that extra
rep or minute on the treadmill.
Don’t blow a gasket! Warming up
gives your heart and lungs time to get
used to the increased need for oxygen.
Without time for your blood vessels to
widen your blood pressure may reach
inappropriate levels and your heart mus-
cle may not be receiving the oxygen it
needs to cope with the increased work
What is a good warm-up? I recom-
mend doing some form of cardiovascular
activity for 5 to 10 minutes at no more
than 50% of normal workout intensity
(AFAA and ACE 2000). Afterwards, I
suggest controlled rhythmic stretching
that takes your joints through a full range
of motion. Remember that extended
warm-ups are recommended for certain
individuals and it is best to consult with
