The Observer - - WEEKEND -

1 Keep it short. You only need five to 10 min­utes of low to mod­er­ately stren­u­ous ac­tiv­ity be­fore you ex­er­cise.

2 Tai­lor the ac­tiv­ity to your main work­out. Walk be­fore a slow jog and slow jog be­fore a run.

3 Re­place static stretching with dynamic stretching. Get those joints — and your body — mov­ing. Save your static stretches for af­ter ex­er­cise when your mus­cles are warmer and your body more flex­i­ble.
