What does warming-up and stretching do for you?
• Gets the blood flowing, the body temperature up = allows the body to perform better.
• Gets fluids to the joints = prevents injury
• Opens capillaries to the muscles = provides essential nutrients to muscles
• Increases flexibility = better range of motion for more muscle recruitment
• Stretches connective tissue = creates space for muscles to grow into
• Reduces post-workout soreness = allows you to come back and hit muscles again sooner
