GET­TING STARTED

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Gold Coast Eye - - FEATURE EYE -

Keep it short. You only need five to 10 min­utes of low to mod­er­ately stren­u­ous ac­tiv­ity be­fore you ex­er­cise. Tai­lor the ac­tiv­ity to your main work­out. Walk be­fore a slow jog and slow jog be­fore a run. 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.
