The Warm-Up


Warming-up is a basic part of Physical Education. We do it everyday, so it is the first thing you must learn.


A warm-up is a series of exercises you do before physical activity.

Warm-ups must prepare the muscles for the activity.

There are very different types of warm-ups, (high intensity, low intensity, for basketball, for tennis…).

So, the warm-up football players do is different from the one handball players do.

Warm-ups are specific to the sport or activity you practice.

Benefits of warming-up:

If you do a good warm-up, you can get:

1) Protection against injuries
2) Better performance
