We know you’re busy,

but running out before the cool down can dull the benefits you’ve worked so hard for!  It can stunt muscle repair, cause extra muscle soreness, and even dizziness!

 How should you cool down?

Spend about 3 minutes slowing down, doing an easier version of your workout.  Then stretch, holding each one for at least 30 seconds.  Your muscles are warm, so now is a great time to work on flexibility!  Finally, transition back to your day slowly and be sure to drink lots of water!
