- WARM-UPS – It’s important to warm up before any physical activity. This series of warm-up exercises can be done in just ten minutes before yard work or other physical tasks, working out, or playing sports. Preparing your body for a workout should always include exercises designed to stretch and warm up your muscles. This helps prevent injury and decrease muscle soreness. If you are in generally good physical condition, try this warm-up out. Click here to view and download the PDF.
