8 Important Reasons to do a Warm Up before Sport 

With the onset of rain and cold weather we decided to put together a warm post that you should follow!

Have  you ever ran out on the pitch before a big game or waiting for your turn to jump on the water for a quick wakeboarding set and wonder why the hell do I need to warm up for or think I dont need to warm up at all. Well get ready to be sick of hearing all our coaches telling you over the next couple of weeks. It may be a chore but get it done it could save you from some series injuries.

Well here are 8 reasons why!

  1. Increased speed of contraction and relaxation of warmed muscles.

  2. Dynamic exercises reduce muscle stiffness.

  3. Greater economy of movement because of lowered viscous resistance within warmed muscles.

  4. Facilitated oxygen utilization by warmed muscles because haemoglobin releases oxygen more readily at higher muscle temperatures.

  5. Facilitated nerve transmission and muscle metabolism at higher temperatures; a specific warm up can facilitate motor unit recruitment required in subsequent all out activity.

  6. Increased blood flow through active tissues as local vascular beds dilate, increasing metabolism and muscle temperatures.

  7. Allows the heart rate get to a workable rate for beginning exercise.

  8. Mentally focused on the training or competition .
