With this wave of cold weather on us earlier than expected, it is even more crucial to warm up before you begin any form of exercise,
Often skipped, the warmup is a most important step. Among other things, It lubricates the joints and get’s you limber, it oxygenates the blood and awakes your whole system for the task at hand.
The best warmup for any given activity is that activity done at a very low intensity or some good old calisthenics.
So remember when you hit that elliptical, Walk before you run!
