Pre-workout Warm-Up sequences for entire body for the students of classes VI-X

The importance of warm–up exercises should be considered by anybody who works out. A good warm-up will raise the body temperature, which is particularly helpful to the body muscles. As the muscle temperature increases, oxygen becomes more available to the muscles, allowing them to contract and relax more easily. It improves muscle elasticity and allows for efficient cooling, meaning less chance of accidentally hurting oneself or overheating during the workout and ruining the entire day. It also increases one's flexibility and mentally prepares oneself for a good exercise session.
