Warm Up, Cool Down and Be Flexible - OrthoInfo - AAOS
Warm Up, Cool Down and Be Flexible - OrthoInfo - AAOS: "An effective fitness program is more than aerobic training and strength building. To really reap the benefits of exercise, you need to add flexibility and balance training to the mix.

All exercise sessions should end with stretching — and not just for the mental relaxation benefits. Increasing your flexibility improves your ability to move easily and can reduce your risk for injury."
