Keeping Muscles Strong and Flexible
|Warm Down / Recovery – Performance Enhancement|
Performing a cool down after your workout can help the elimination of waste products from your muscles, such as lactic acid, which can build up during vigorous activity. The most effective way to remove lactic acid accumulated in the muscles is by doing gentle exercise for 10-15 minutes. This also helps to prepare your muscles for your next session.
