How to Cool Down after a Workout

Cooling down after workout is similar to warming up. It is actually a continuation of a workout session, but at a slower pace and reduced intensity.

Here are some examples of cool down activities after a workout:

  • To cool down after a brisk walk, walk slowly for 5-10 minutes.
  • To cool down after a run, walk briskly for 5-10 minutes.
  • To cool down after swimming, swim some leisure laps for 5-10 minutes.

Mild stretching exercises to ease up the exerted muscles are also a good idea.

Warm up and cool down can be skipped if the exercises performed are easy and low intensity.
