Expert Tips

Warm-ups and cool-downs are important parts of any exercise program. By gently stretching before you work out, you tell your muscles that they'll soon be needed. Cooling down with light calisthenics and more gentle stretching will help return your heart rate to normal, and help reduce post-workout soreness.
