Cool Down exercises - what, why & how to do them

So, you warmed up for your workout, then had a great time pumping some extra beats during your walk/run or at the gym. Now, make sure you spend a few minutes to cool down.

Why? 

During a workout, no matter at what level- professional, amateur or novice, the body's muscles, tendons and ligaments undergo some level of stress. Therefore, an effective cool-down enables the body to move from the exercise state to that of steady rest.
