Sports enthusiasts will definitely have mental and physical association with warming up activities. They will habitually run around the field and perform static stretches afterwards, by sitting down on the ground. They may use common stretching procedures, such as hurdler stretch and various reach-down movements. Many youngsters think that warms up is a tedious and purposeless activity. They may consider as not being stimulating for their body and their minds, as well as inefficient. However, warm up sessions are something that we need to do, before we perform more intense physical activities.
In general, we could perform various dynamic and active warm-up movements. It is a good idea to abandon more passive, traditional warm up practices to improve the efficiency of the whole activity. Our goal should be to elevate the core body temperature by performing moderate-intensity physical activities for specific period of time. In this we will be able to be more focused and we can be better prepared for the actual sports sessions.
Professional athletes may spend up to 20 minutes to prepare their body for the sports competition. As the physical activity accumulates, the overall sports performance will also increase. This is also a good opportunity for us to hone various motor skills. We will be able to activate various movement systems that will be crucially important for the sports session. Sports experts have researched and developed various warm-up movements can provide the best results. We need to find ways to reproduce movements that could really work in delivering optimal results and they should be able to increase the overall core temperature of our body.
With effective warm up movements, we should be able to achieve desired physiological state that can help us perform well. Each field of sports could include unique movements that can help us to achieve warm-up results comprehensively and systematically. Regardless of what methods we choose, they should include various biomechanical ideas of our human anatomy.
In general, we should make sure that the fascial and muscles components of our body could form as functional units. Movements should be translated throughout our body and they need to be structurally connected. This will make our body into a one big mass of muscle. There are muscle chains that we may need to focus on, such as lateral chains, back chain, front chain and diagonal parts. This should allow us to perform systematic warm up sessions. We should make sure that our body has been fully tuned on in a proper way. We should get the right movements patterns.
Our goal is to make sure that we get an overall increase in the body core temperature. This should be considered as the basic concept of warming up. Our body functions should operate much better as our internal temperature slowly increases, due to physical activities with moderate intensity. Our cardio vascular system will also be warmed up during this warm-up session. With proper warm-up sessions our wntire musculoskeletal and neurological systems will be properly boosted.
