SWEAT and Kelsey highly recommend taking a few minutes to warm-up prior to working out. Incorporating 3-5 minutes of cardio, such as jogging in place or skipping, will help increase your heart rate and help warm up your muscles for your session. When possible, SWEAT and Kelsey recommend following your cardio with dynamic stretches — such as leg swings, arm circles, and torso twists. This can help to increase your range of motion as well as help to reduce the risk of injury.
SWEAT and Kelsey highly recommend completing a cool down session after your workout. Incorporating 3-5 minutes of walking will help to slowly lower your heart rate to normal levels and help your body to cool down after a workout. You might also like to complete some static stretching as part of your cool down, where you hold a single position for twenty seconds or longer. Static stretching works to lengthen your muscles with the aim of increasing your flexibility and range of motion. It can also help provide relief from any potential cramping and can help reduce soreness and risk of injury.
