  4. 4. WHY WARMING UP?  It avoids injuries in the locomotor system such as sprains or fibre fractures. It favours the rise of muscle temperature improving the muscle elasticity, the coordination, the rhythm and the attention.  It avoids injuries in the respiratory system rising the heart and respiratory rate and blood circulation. Therefore the body is prepared for a greater effort.  It improves the performance: strength, endurance, speed and elasticity are improved after an adequate warming up.  It improves motivation and concentration.

  12. 12. SHOULD EVERYBODY WARM UP IN THE SAME WAY?  THE AGE. Kids and young people need more time, why?. Because their physical condition are better, but their muscle need less time to warm up.  THE SPORT. The warming up will be different for an aerobic sport such as running or for an anaerobic one such weight-lifting.  THE PHYSICAL CONDITION. A person who trains little time will become tired in a faster way so he or she will warm up with less intensity.  THE TIME OF THE DAY. In the morning the body needs more time to adapt to the effort.  THE ROOM TEMPERATURE. When it is cold, the warming up takes more time.

It may vary depending on why they are training e.g. • To lose Weight • To win a world title • Rehabilitation after injury • Improve current fitness • Physical education class
  14. 14. COOL DOWN
  15. 15. COOL DOWN The cool down gradually returns the body to its normal temperature and the working pulse rate to the resting pulse rate. It helps to prevent stiffness and soreness in the muscles by dispersing lactic acid. In order to return the pulse to its resting rate, a similar activity could be used as the one to warm-up.
  16. 16. IT´S A JOKE Everybody needs to warm up
