Professional Oregon Trainer Kisar| Importance of a Cool Down

Sometimes the last thing you want to do after a challenging cardio workout is to do a cool-down, but it is extremely important. For example, if you are doing the stair climber the legs are demanding a lot of blood and oxygen to keep up with the activity. If you were to just step right off the exercise machine without doing a cool down, there is a strong possibility that you could faint, pass out or injury yourself.  When this happens, it is caused by blood pulling in the legs and it has not had a chance to recirculate back to homeostasis. That is why a good 3 to 5 minute cool down is so important.Thanks,Kisar
