The reason "Why" should you warm up before stretching.
Why Should You Warm Up First?
Research indicates that there are numerous reasons to warm up prior to stretching, but the fact of the matter is you need to increase the temperature of your muscles before stretching to prevent straining them. In fact, you can view “warming up” in a very literal sense. You warm up your muscles to allow them to move more easily and reduce your risk of injury. Stretching your muscles while cold is risky and counterproductive.
Warming up prior to stretching acts to loosen your muscles and increase their overall flexibility. It also increases blood flow throughout your body and enlarges your blood vessels to bring more oxygen into your muscles. This practice also functions to flood your heart with plenty of oxygen to reduce the overall stress placed on your heart while working out. Additionally, making sure your body is warm first will improve your range of motion, slowly increase your heart rate, and diminish your chance of developing cramps.
