15 Section 13.2 Setting Goals for Lifelong Fitness Slide 15 of 21 A warm-up is a five- to ten-minute period of mild exercise that prepares your body for a vigorous workout. Warming Up and Stretching A warm-up should include some of the same motions as your planned activity, but at a slower pace. Your warm-up should also include five to ten minutes of stretching. Hold stretches for 15 seconds.

16 Section 13.2 Setting Goals for Lifelong Fitness Slide 16 of 21 The Workout The workout is when you perform an activity at its peak level. To be effective, your workout should follow the FITT formula.

Cooling Down and Stretching Your cool-down should be at least as long as your warm-up. Stretching after your cool-down loosens muscles that may have tightened during exercise. Spend at least five minutes repeating the stretches you did during your warm-up period.
