The science and lack thereof behind ‘Cooling down’

Warm ups have always been deemed as important to get your body going before a workout. But how often do we finish a workout and feel “I don’t have time to cool-down” or “I’ll stretch later”. Having a good ending is as important as having a good start.

Check out the articles below for a comprehensive summary of the science and practice behind cool down exercises. The second link brings you to the study that the first article referred to:
1. Are Cool-Downs After Training Scientifically Valid?
2. Do We Need a Cool-Down After Exercise? A Narrative Review of the Psychophysiological Effects and the Effects on Performance, Injuries and the Long-Term Adaptive Response.

Let’s continue to keep fit in a safe manner!

P.S remember to checkout the ‘warm up!’ post posted previously if you have not done so (:
