What type of warm up exercises do you do before and after your workout? I am always conflicted with various advice from health and fitness experts on what to do prior to a workout. I always stretch and do a simple 5 minute warm up to get my body ready for a routine. My warm up may consist of 30 pushups and 50 squats with weights. I came across one report stating you shouldn't stretch before a workout because it could possibly cause injury to the body. Sighs, whatever and I didn't believe a word of the article. Anyway, what do you guys do before and after a workout?
