WARMING UP AND COOLING DOWN – IMPORTANT

Warming up the muscles substantially decreases the chances of injury and
only takes a few moments to do.
Cooling down helps removes the lactic acid build-up in the muscles by
oxygenating the muscles after your exercise routine. Lactic acid is what
makes you ache after a workout, cooling down should be undertaken soon
after the last set of exercises you intend to complete.
Warming up and cooling down exercises are identical and easy to
remember. Both warming up and cooling down should be done slowly and
accurately, there is no hurry to complete these exercises, it is more important
to complete them. In addition, it is good practise to move around after the
cool down exercises to further dissipate the lactic acid.
QUADRICEPS STRETCH
Stand close to a wall, chair or other solid object. Use
one hand to assist your balance. Bend the opposite
knee and lift your heel towards your buttocks. Reach
back and grasp the top of your foot with the same side
hand. Keeping your inner thighs close together, slowly
pull your foot towards your buttocks until you feel a
gentle stretch in the front of your thigh. You do not
have to touch your buttocks with your heel. Stop pulling
when you feel the stretch. Keep your kneecap pointing
straight down and keep your knees close together. (Do
not let the lifted knee swing outward.)
Hold the stretch for 20 to 30 seconds. Repeat the
exercise for the other leg.
TOP TIP:
Use a chair or a wall to help keep your balance only
if you need to.
10
Stand approximately one arm’s length
away from a wall or chair with your
feet hip-width apart. Keeping your toes
pointed forward, move one leg in close
to the chair while extending the other
leg behind you. Bending the leg closest
to the chair and keeping the other leg
straight, place your hands on the chair.
Keep the heel of the back leg on the
ground and move your hips forward.
Slowly lean forward from the ankle,
keeping your back leg straight until you
feel a stretch in your calf muscles. Hold
for 20 to 30 seconds. Repeat the exercise
for the opposite leg.
INNER THIGH STRETCH
Sit on the floor and bend your legs so
that the soles of your feet are together.
Place your hands on your ankles. Lean
forward from the waist and press down
lightly on the inside of your knees. You
should feel a stretch in the muscles of
your inner thighs.

WARMING UP AND COOLING DOWN – IMPORTANT
WARMING UP AND COOLING DOWN – IMPORTANT
BUTTOCKS, HIPS AND ABDOMINAL STRETCH
OVERHEAD/TRICEPS STRETCH
Lay flat on your back with your hips relaxed against the floor. Bend one leg at the knee.
Keeping both shoulders flat on the floor, gently grasp the bent knee with your hands and pull
it over your body and towards the ground. You should feel a stretch in your hips, abdominal
and lower back. Hold for 20 to 30 seconds and release. Repeat the exercise for the opposite
side.
Stand with your feet shoulder width apart
and your knees slightly bent. Lift one arm
overhead and bend your elbow, reaching
down behind your head with your hand
toward the opposite shoulder blade. Walk
your fingertips down your back as far as
you can. Hold this position. Reach up with
your opposite hand and grasp your flexed
elbow. Gently assist the stretch by pulling on
the elbow. Hold for 20 to 30 seconds.

STANDING HAMSTRINGS STRETCH
Stand with your legs hip width apart.
Extend one leg out in front of you and
keep that foot flat against the ground.
With your hands resting lightly on your
thighs, bend your back leg and lean
forward slightly from your hips until you
feel a stretch in the back of your thigh.
Be sure to lean forward from the hip
joint rather than bending at your waist.
Hold for 20 to 30 seconds. Repeat the
exercise for the opposite leg.
12
Warming up and cooling down
should take around ten minutes
each. It is sensible to adjust this timing
according to your own situation.
You would benefit from a longer
warm-up session if you exercise soon
after waking up than you would after
a walk to the shops and back for
example.
Take your time warming up and
cooling down, enjoy the stretches as
they will make you feel better.
Top Tip: As you progress, you can
create your own warm up and cool
down exercise routine, you do not need
to keep strictly to the above routine so
long as you utilise all the basic muscle
types included above.
