Sport Medicine

A proper warm-up should prepare the athlete physically, physiologically and psychologically for training/competition. It should include elements such as moderate intensity activity to increase your heart rate, breathing rate and tissue temperature; mobility and flexibility exercises to ensure the joints/muscles have enough range for the required sport; neuromuscular activation, agility and proprioception exercises to prepare the body for the quick reactions needed during training/competition, sport-specific drills to warm-up sport patterns and psychologically prepare for the upcoming event.
