    Why warm-up?
    Is it important to do a warm-up before exercising? I was told that it is important to get more oxygen before we start exercising. If this is true, can we use breathing techniques to get more oxygen instead of a warm-up?

    Warm ups
    Warming up before working out is very important. Stretching before running, weight training or team sports will help prevent strained muscles. Stretching only takes a few minutes but torn muscles can take months to heal so prevention is the best thing.
