Why OnTheGoSystems warm-ups are important to a great workday

September 25, 2020

Have you ever noticed that many people are in a bad mood in the morning? Doctors believe that one of the reasons for this condition lies in the absence of physical activity.

No wonder. The human body doesn’t fully wake up when the alarm rings. And even at the moment when you have already got out of bed, all internal organs and systems still continue to “rest”.

After some physical exercises, the worked-out muscles send a sufficient number of impulses to the brain, thanks to which it actively tunes into the working mood. The morning warm-up allows you to keep the muscles of the body in tone and charges with energy for the whole day.

10 minutes of physical exercise in the morning is enough to make the blood circulate more intensively in the vessels. As a result, body tissues are saturated with oxygen and nutrients. The supply of oxygen to the brain cells leads to the activation of its activity, to the improvement of attention and memory.

Three benefits of regular morning exercises:

  • Better muscle development
  • Improvement of posture, thanks to the promoting habit of keeping the back and shoulders straight and not slouching
  • Prevention of scoliosis and osteochondrosis

What type of exercises should be done during morning warm-ups?

It is recommended to include: 

  • Pull-ups to stretch the muscles of the back and spine
  • Rotations to warm up the joints of the head, neck, hands, elbows, shoulders, legs
  • Stretching for warming up muscles and ligaments
  • Squats to strengthen the muscles of the lower body

At OntheGoSystems, we make sure to include all of these exercises throughout the week. We offer group warm-ups every morning and follow a schedule with lots of variety: pilates, workout for legs, abs, arms, and stretching.

Start your mornings cheerfully!
