Warm Up & Strech Program
The time a person spends without exercising is a variable that must be taken into account when designing a new exercise routine, according to Doctor James Jennings, Family Medicine Specialist at Baptist Health Primary Care.
The doctor says he pushes people towards doing warm-up which would include stretching individually in order to minimize injuries and maintain patients motivated. He explains he is real big on preparation in terms of low key and when the patient is ready for the next step, he increases it.
However, he recommends being very careful with older crowd, especially if they have not been doing exercise for several years.
