Many times we forget to warm up our muscles before exercising because we are lazy or we are not aware of its importance. However, Performing a good warm-up prior to exercise prepares our muscles and joints , which can help us prevent and avoid injury during the activity.
The same happens when we finish practicing sports. Stretching afterwards is as important as warming up beforehand to avoid injury. At the end of the exercise we are so tired that we put aside this fundamental part of the sport.
Our happylegs machine is perfect to use as a passive exercise before and after playing sports ! Here we explain how:
