    • Purpose of a warm up
      • Prepare for activity
      • Reduce the risk of injury
      • Enhance performance
    • Format of a warm up
      • 1) Whole body/gross motor activity e.g. jogging- raises muscle core temp.
      • 2) Stretching
      • 3) Skills practice
    • Theory of a warm up
      • must get to game speed
      • needs to last long enough for vascular shunt to occur (7 mins)
    • Responses
      • Increased HR/CO
      • ventilation rate increases
      • core muscle temp. increases
      • better O2 extraction
      • increase in speed of nerve transmission
      • More synovial fluid produced
      • Improves hand-eye neuromuscular mechanisms
