Proper Warm-Up and Cool-Down

It is of the utmost importance to have an effective warm-up in order to prevent injury and maximize performance. Dynamic stretches before a workout have shown the best results and a static stretch can be used as a supplement or as a morning routine. A cool-down period, during which the athlete gradually slows down, seems to prevent muscle soreness the following day. Static stretches can be used at this time as well.
