“Warming up before a race is important t prepare your body for the race you are about to do. It allows your muscles to prepare so they aren’t as in much shock whenever you begin a race. Warming down is also very critical. After a race, you want to keep moving to allow the lactic acid to leave your muscles. Warming down allows you to lower your heart rate and prepare your body for the next race. I feel lie warming up and down is very important for successful races,” Stapelton said.
