Warming up actually helps you prepare both mentally and physically for exercise. Some other benefits of warming up include:
!) The muscles become more flexible due to the increased flow of blood throughout the entire body. 2) Increased delivery of oxygen and nutrients to your muscles. 3) It prepares your muscles for stretching. 4) Prepares your heart for an increase in activity. 5) Primes your nerve-to-muscle pathwys to be ready for exercise which improves coordination and reaction times.
