    http://www.nsmi.org.uk/articles/inju...arming-up.html gradually increasing the heart rate and circulation; this will loosen the joints and increase blood flow to the muscles. Stretching the muscles prepares them for physical activity and prevents injuries.

    primarily its main purpose is to prepare the body and mind for more strenuous activity. One of the ways it achieves this is by helping to increase the body's core temperature, while also increasing the body's muscle temperature. By increasing muscle temperature you are helping to make the muscles loose, supple and pliable. An effective warm up also has the effect of increasing both your heart rate and your respiratory rate. This increases blood flow, which in turn increases the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the working muscles. All this helps to prepare the muscles, tendons and joints for more strenuous activity.

    By warming up you are increasing the temperature of the muscles and also increase their flexibility by a small amount. Due to this, any sudden movement is less likely to result in a tear of the muscles

    It is important to increase the blood flow because muscles need more energy for more movement during exercise. More energy will require more respiration which in turn requires more oxygen. To increase the supply of oxygen you need to increase the supply of blood!
