Increase Activation
The life we live on a day to day basis opens the door to injury. Many times our body is cool or cold. Imagine lifting heavy boxes. If your body is properly prepared before, you reduce risk. One reason connects back to the ability to recruit the correct muscle fibres of the body. You can be extremely specific when you are warming up. Sitting idle creates more causes for bodily harm when movement is added. By increasing muscle activation you can get more from your session in the gym.



Injury Prevention
In exercise, it is also nearly impossible to safely move a cold body. Joint and muscle safety is another reason why you should warm up before exercise. People commonly pull and strain backs lifting objects on a day to day basis. The power of a proper warm up routine is that your body increases temperature.
