Do you experience body aches and muscle pain after your workouts? Skipping the warm-up and cool down routine is a common habit among most exercisers. However, these are the most important parts of an exercise regimen. You need to bring your body back to a state of rest after the rigorous workout. Cool down exercises do just that by lowering your heart rate, aiding proper blood flow. Cool down exercises also signal the brain to release adequate oxygen so as to prevent fainting after the exercise routine.
This video shows 10 exercises of 30 seconds that take you through the entire cooling down process. All it takes is 5 minutes to stretch and relax your muscles in order to avoid any pain or injury later.
