March 7 - The Cool Down

The cool down is just as important as the warm-up.  Cooling down is similar to warming up.  You generally continue your workout session, but at a slower pace and reduced intensity.

Here are some examples of cool down activities:

  • To cool down after a brisk walk, walk slowly for five to ten minutes.
  • To cool down after a run, walk briskly for five to ten minutes.
  • To cool down after swimming, swim some leisure laps for five to ten minutes.
