Introduction

Awareness of safety: When doing any sort of training it is obviously very important to keep things safe, and avoid any sort of injury as this could affect your training if you were to injure yourself and avoid any hazards during training.

The performance may be improved as an appropriate warm up will result in an: ==> Increased oxygen delivery to the muscles due to an increase in heart rate, dilation of blood vessels through the release of adrenaline and the vascular shunt mechanism and escalating metabolism and muscle temperatures. ==> Increased venous return and therefore stroke volume through the action of the skeletal muscle pump. ...read more.

Conclusion
