Before starting any workout, please remember to warm up and stretch properly. Incorporate speed drills into your warm up to help master the skills associated with proper running mechanics. A good warm up should last between five to ten minutes with the goal of increasing your internal, core body temperature. This increase in core temperature is normally defined when a substantial sweat is achieved. Then, take ten to fifteen minutes to dynamically stretch your entire body. Following the workouts, again, take time to warm down and stretch. Five to ten minutes is an adequate time for a warm down. The use of a static stretching program after a workout is more beneficial and should not be taken lightly. Stretching for fifteen minutes each day will increase the resting length of muscles, restore normal range of movement, encourage proper blood flow and permit increase of power with strengthening exercises.
