Prevent injury and lessen fatigue. Warming up seems like it can be a waste of time but it is very important to the health of your body chemistry and your muscles and bone. Warming up is a signal to your body that activity is on its way and is increasing it is a good way to get your metabolism to wake up.
Short burst without a warm up
When your body cores doesn’t get a chance to thoroughly warm up before entering continuous exercise it thinks it is going it to a “fight or flight” mode and doesn’t work to burn calories efficiently. Instead your body is working to conserve calories because you are releasing high levels of cortisol which tells your body this is a “high stress” state of being. Short bursts work out without warming up can take your body as long as 45 minutes to begin burning calories and you are done working out by then.
Warming up is like lighting a candle and setting the mood for meditation
Warming up consists of two phases: aerobic activity to get circulation going and flexibility exercises that prevent injury. When warm up is done routinely it is a signal to your body that you are getting ready to work out and your body begins to go into burning calories right away, instead of reserving the calories for “flight” pattern.
Make the time
If you suffer from asthma that is exercise induced warming a way to prevent an “episode.” If you have been a “couch potato,” or just come out of surgery your body needs time to adjust to your new routine and working out. Warming up is not for the “weak” but for the wise, increasing the “burn.”
