Warm Up

Episode 1. Warm Up.

Most of us do it before games. Some of us do it before training, and some don’t bother at all.  The one thing we do have in common is we’re all at more of a risk of injury if we don’t warm up.

Warming up isn’t simply a nuisance to get out of the way before the fun stuff. Teams need to allow at least 20 minutes before every contact session and it’s the coach’s job to make their players understand the benefits – including increased muscle, body and blood temperature.
