Ok all you weekend warriors.
I know that you feel great at the end of the week and have the feeling you can now blow off a lot of steam. Remember that in order to keep healthy and not injure yourselves, you should make sure to warm up prior to your physical activities. What does this mean??

Before you do an activity (which can tear tendons or muscles by accident), get the tissue ready for the activity. Jogging on the spot and doing upper body movements are good ways to do this. Keep it light and steady for a few minutes. After that, Dynamic Stretches are helpful. These stretches are not held long and are more like moving your body into its full position and then out again.

A video has been placed on our site to better help you understand these forms of stretches.
