Not everyone can make it to the gym every day, but there is a lot that one can do right at home to keep the body in great shape.
An exercise regime needs to begin with a warm-up session in order to protect the muscles from injuries such as pulled muscles.
A good warm-up session lasts between fifteen and twenty minutes. It stretches and warms up every part of the body ready for work-out. The more intense the workout, the more adequately the body needs to be prepared through warm-up. Each exercise should take 25-30 seconds.
WARM UP BEFORE THE MORE INTENSE WORKOUT SESSION
An arm swings session is a great way to kick off the warm-up session. Gently move the legs shifting the weight from one leg to the other while swinging the arms as far as they can possibly go. This prepares the body for the exercises and also loosen up the shoulders.
This can be followed up with jumping jacks which involve jumping up and down legs apart then together while the arms are stretched to clap the hands above the head then dropping them to the side.
Run on the toes rather than on the entire foot in order to prepare the ankle joint.
