Think of cooling down as a short transition between exercise and regular life.</p> <h3>What is Lactic Acid?</h3> <p>Lactic acid builds up in your muscles during intense exercise <sup>2</sup>. It’s a normal process, but if it stays there, you’ll end up with sore, fatigued muscles. That’s one reason a cool down is so important.</p> </section> <hr class="divider-50 divider-medium mx-auto"> <section id="section3"> <h2>The 3 Components of a Cool Down</h2> <h3>1. Gentle Exercise</h3> <p>No need for a second workout or anything too crazy here. You just <a target="_blank" href="https://www.warriormade.com/content/exercise/" rel="noreferrer">worked out</a>, after all. </p> <p>Pick a few gentle exercises, meaning nothing that will elevate your heart rate too much. Even a <a target="_blank" href="https://www.warriormade.com/content/exercise/10-reasons-why-walking-is-the-best-exercise" rel="noreferrer">brisk walk</a> works perfectly.</p> <h4>What Are Some Good Cool Down Exercises?</h4> Pick exercises specific to your workout. Mimic, modify, or repeat some of the exercises you did during your workout. This way you’re circulating blood in and out of the muscles you just used.</p> <p>For example, if you did a <a target="_blank" href="https://www.warriormade.com/content/exercise/6-bodyweight-leg-workout-progressions-you-can" rel="noreferrer">leg workout</a>, now do 10 to 15 of your favorite <a target="_blank" href="https://www.warriormade.com/content/exercise/5-squat-variations-that-will-kick-your-butt" rel="noreferrer">squat variations</a> or a few <a target="_blank" href="https://www.warriormade.com/content/exercise/glutes-101-best-exercises-for-your-gluteus-maximus/" rel="noreferrer">glute activation exercises</a>.</p> <h3>2. Stretching</h3> <p>Second on your cool down list: light stretching. Stretching is beneficial for 3 reasons:</p> <ol> <li>Stretching reduces lactic acid in the muscles, meaning you’ll be less sore tomorrow and less fatigued the rest of the day <sup>1</sup>.</li> <li>It increases <a target="_blank" href="https://www.warriormade.com/content/exercise/2-easy-shoulder-stretches-to-increase-mobility/" rel="noreferrer">joint range of motion</a>, which keeps your joints healthy. And because your blood was just pumping, you can probably stretch further than when you’re cold.</li> <li>Stretching <i>feels</i> good after a hard workout!</li> </ol> <h3>3. Food and Water</h3> <p>Maybe this is “part 2” of your post-workout routine, but no cool down is complete without refueling and rehydrating. </p> <p>Drink a big <a target="_blank" href="https://www.warriormade.com/content/diet/water-fasting-what-it-is-and-how-to-do-it-right/" rel="noreferrer">glass of water</a> (perhaps with a bit of sea salt in it for electrolytes) and plan to <a target="_blank" href="https://www.warriormade.com/content/diet/" rel="noreferrer">eat something</a> to promote muscle recovery.</p> <p>You don’t have to eat <i>immediately</i> after you work out. Some people can’t eat right away. However, several studies have found you’ll add more lean muscle if you eat a good meal within an hour of exercising <sup>2</sup>. </p> <p>Actually, a few extra carbs after your workout might <i>help</i> with your weight loss goals <sup>3</sup>. Obviously, if you’re <a target="_blank" href="https://www.warriormade.com/content/diet/keto-101-a-beginners-guide/" rel="noreferrer">keto</a>, don’t go crazy with the carbs after a workout. But eating a few carbs after exercising <a target="_blank" href="https://www.warriormade.com/content/diet/when-is-the-best-time-to-eat-carbs-on-keto/" rel="noreferrer">might be the best time</a> of the day for them!</p> </section> <hr class="divider-50 divider-medium mx-auto"> <section id="section4"> <h2>10 Cool Down Exercises</h2> <picture class="lazy-load"> <source data-srcset="https://d1ghrtdbdq2gkr.cloudfront.net/blog-content/courtney-broom-stretch-2-0215.webp" type="image/webp"> <source data-srcset="https://d1ghrtdbdq2gkr.cloudfront.net/blog-content/courtney-broom-stretch-2-0215.jp2" type="image/jpf"> <source data-srcset="https://d1ghrtdbdq2gkr.cloudfront.net/blog-content/courtney-broom-stretch-2-0215.jpg"> <img src="https://d1ghrtdbdq2gkr.cloudfront.net/blog-content/courtney-broom-stretch-2-LR-0215.jpg" class="img-fluid" alt="courtney-broom-stretch"> </picture> <picture class="lazy-load"> <source data-srcset="https://d1ghrtdbdq2gkr.cloudfront.net/blog-content/courtney-broom-stretch-1-0215.webp" type="image/webp"> <source data-srcset="https://d1ghrtdbdq2gkr.cloudfront.net/blog-content/courtney-broom-stretch-1-0215.jp2" type="image/jpf"> <source data-srcset="https://d1ghrtdbdq2gkr.cloudfront.net/blog-content/courtney-broom-stretch-1-0215.jpg"> <img src="https://d1ghrtdbdq2gkr.cloudfront.net/blog-content/courtney-broom-stretch-1-LR-0215.jpg" class="img-fluid" alt="courtney-broom-stretch"> </picture> <h3>1.
