"Warming up is more than just preparing to play the game. It's actually like dosing a little bit of medicine every day for your joints, for your soft tissues."

"Performing warm-up programs at least once per week is beneficial, with additional sessions further enhancing the protective effects."

"Warming up by increasing the heart rate is essential for several reasons. It enhances performance by improving what's called myocardial perfusion. You're going to get more blood to your heart."

"Dynamic flexibility is basically placing a load on multiple body segments in a coordinated fashion... You're gradually increasing more blood flow to these muscles and preparing them for the upcoming physical demand."
