Warm up ? Increased speed of contraction and relaxation of warmed muscles ? Dynamic exercises reduce muscle stiffness ? Greater economy of movement because of lowered viscous resistance within warmed muscles ? Facilitated oxygen utilization by warmed muscles because haemoglobin releases oxygen more readily at higher muscle temperatures ? Facilitated nerve transmission and muscle metabolism at higher temperatures; a specific warm up can facilitate motor unit recruitment required in subsequent all out activity ? Increased blood flow through active tissues as local vascular beds dilate, increasing metabolism and muscle temperatures. ? Allows the heart rate get to a workable rate for beginning exercise ?

Perform two to four sets for six to 10 seconds per set. Rest a minute to a minute and a half between sets. Adaptation 3 Add sprints to the end of the hurdle movements.

Immediately sprint forward eight yards. ? Turn right, and sprint straight ahead over the hurdles eight yards. ? Drop step and sprint straight away from the hurdles eight yards.
