Warming-up and cooling down

The goal of a warming-up is to warm up the body and to increase the concentration during exercising. Direct intensive exercising with cold muscles and joints significantly increases the chance of injuries. Stretching with cold muscles is also not recommended. There is a chance that your muscles will rip or tear. Muscles should have the same temperature as the body to perform optimally. A warming-up is very important.
After a training or match it is recommended to do a cooling down. A cooling down helps to lower the body temperature and to dispose the waste materials of the body. You will recover quicker from your efforts.
