Description

As the historical methodologies of sports medicine have evolved and expanded, the act of passive stretching has been replaced by low-intensity exercise—or warming up—in order to fully prepare the body for physical tasks. Combined with a prevention- based approach, "warming up" has proven to be a powerful and effective tool in a modern occupational setting, bringing heightened productivity, lower rates of musculoskeletal injuries, and long-term improvements in both health and safety.

  • Define the distinguishing differences of warming up vs. stretching and it application to pre-work stretching in occupational settings
  • Demonstrate dynamic warm up movements that can be incorporated into any job setting.
  • Identify metrics used to measure the impact of one company's warm up program for a return on the company's investment.
