5 Reasons Kids Need to Warm Up for Soccer

5 Reasons to Warm Up for Soccer

  1. Warming up helps break down the chemical complex of oxygen, which enables it to separate from the blood and enhance its delivery to the muscle.

  2. Increases body temperature. Warming up reduces the potential for muscle and connective injuries.

  3. Increases blood flow to exercising muscles.

  4. Increase blood flow to the heart. More blood to the heart means a reduced risk for exercise-induced cardiac abnormalities.

  5. Prepares the cardiovascular system for impending workload. Helps the heart and blood vessels adjust to the body's increased demands for blood and oxygen.
