Good to Know Info
Some people believe that stretching and warming up are more or less the same concept/practice. In fact, they're not, warming up is designed to prepare us for the demands of the physical activity/workout that will follows. For example, a few mins. of engaging in low intensity whole body exercise (jogging in place) can be an appropriate warm-up.
Warming up should always precede stretching because stretching cold muscles can result in an injury to the muscles being stretched.
