  • Yep. If I didn't I'd pull every muscle in my body.
  • Yes! You should always warm up before working out so that you do not strain your muscles!
  • Yes, it's of most importance, foremost to prevent injury.
  • yes. it's important. I do it before and after.
  • Yes I warm up by using the walking /running machine or a gentle cycle ride.
  • warm up will reduce the possiblity of injury like torn legaments or muscles and your body will increase the adrinaline in your blood which means better preformance
  • Warming up is very important. I like to include lighter versions of the exercises I plan to do in my workout, during my warm up. This not only, physically gets my body warmed up and ready to work, but gets my mind warmed up to visualize how I plan to approach the exercises involved in my workout that day. Most importantly, it's not a good idea to begin training with cold muscles. That is a good way to ask for injuries, improper use of your muscles during your training, as well hinder your intensity during your training as well. Normally, I spend 5-10 minutes warming up with calisthenics before a workout, such as a couple of rounds of 10 push ups, 10 squats, 20 mt.climbers, 10 side bends, 20 jumping jacks, jogging in place, arm circles, and calf bounces (just to name a few - some days are different). Once I finish warming up, I rehydrate, and getting ready to kick my behind properly. One last thing to remember, don't forget to cool down once your training is finished. Cooling down, such as actively stretching your muscles for 5-10 minutes upon finishing your training, will help reduce risk of injury, prolonged soreness, and help calm your heart rate in a timely fashion, after intense training.

  • Yeah, I stretch out real good!
  • I should ~I didn't~now my thighs are HURTING!!!
  • Warming up is the most important thing you do when excersizing. When you are at rest, you muscles and joints are all stiff, so when you exercise suddenly, they are to stiff to stretch to where you want them to go. However, if you warm up, it loosens your joints and muscles up so that they can stretch and bend better. I know a friend who used to do martial arts, and one day he came back from holiday. He performed a high kick without warming up, and he damaged his leg. So please, warm up. The consequences could be painful
  • Warming up is the most important. Yes, that is even BEFORE you stretch. You should not try and stretch "cold" muscles. Also, stretching is also very important at the end of a workout.
