To prevent Pickleball injuries and come to the court ready to play, do these exercises to warm up your muscles. Most players don’t think this of of value until something happens to them. Once you understand the importance of warming up, you are much more open to doing exercises.
Cool down exercises consist of static or slow stretching. Different from active muscle warm ups. Slow stretching actually helps to release tension in the muscles built up from playing. It’s important to cool down by stretching and if you don’t you might get overuse syndrome. OS is using the same muscles over and over again the same way until the muscle tightens to the point of strain. Bingo! An injured muscle taking you out of commission for weeks or months. Be good to your body. Warm up and cool down.
