WHY COOLING DOWN
Cooling down is an easy exercise. It is done after a more intense activity – to allow the body to gradually transition to a resting or near-resting state. Depending on the intensity of the exercise, cooling down can involve a slow jog or walk. Lower intensities stretching can be used. Cooling down allows the heart rate to return to its resting rate. Anecdotally, cooling down may reduce dizziness for professional or serious athletes and vocal performers after strenuous workouts.
