Warming Up…

1 Dec

Why warm up?

“The purpose of a warm up is to familiarize the muscles with movement patterns, help prevent injuries and also increase; blood flow, heart rate,  internal muscular temperature, respiration rate & ease of joint movement (Baechle & Earle, 2000).”

Here at FIT we practice a GENERAL warm up, followed by a SPECIFIC & ACTIVE warm up that focuses on movement patterns and skill development.
