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.
