About this course
Why do we need to warm up?
Running is a high intensity activity, that directs a lot of force through the body. There is a lot of impact on the joints, and a lot of cross-body strain, performed repetitively for long distances.
Preparing our joints for the movements that we are about to use, in a focused way, can help our bodies coordinate for those movements.
This can preserve our joints and ensure that our movements are symmetrical and optimal over longer periods.
