A warm up session prior to playing any sport is essential. The chief reason for doing a warm up is to prevent injury. A typical warm up session may include a combination of cardiovascular exercises and stretching. Cardiovascular exercises are designed to increase blood circulation and bring the heart rate up, while stretching warms and prepares the muscles for sudden movements in the game which may follow. Most warm-up sessions last up to 30 minutes, giving the body time to get ready for physical activity.
