There fore stretches should be performed before and after any workout, which also helps avoid any injuries. Safety There are several safety precautions, which have to be accounted for. Warm ups must be performed before each exercise, and cool-downs have to be performed after as well. Below is a good example of a warm up. * Starts by lightly jogging round a large gym or room. This warms up the leg muscles, and starts the cardiovascular system working rapidly. * Stop, and stretch out the leg muscles. To do this take a large lunge as shown below: * Stretch out the arm muscles, by placing them behind your head, and stretching, and pulling them in all kinds of ways. ...read more.
