When warming up for exercise, you want to use active movements, also known as dynamic stretches. The activities you will do target the areas you are working on for your workout. Warming up aims to increase your heart rate and blood flow. Warming up enables more oxygen and nutrients to your working muscles which causes you to be less stiff and more limber.
