Health Tip: Take Precautions When Exercising
And help prevent injury

(HealthDay News) -- Getting ready to exercise? First get the go-ahead from your doctor, then make sure you take some precautions before you get going.

The Harvard Medical School suggests:

  • Warm up before and cool down after exercise for five to 10 minutes. Begin exercise slowly, and gradually increase duration and intensity.
  • Pushing yourself too hard or performing repetitive activities can increase your risk of injury.
  • Pay attention to your body and stop when you're sick or in pain. If you take a break from exercise, ease back into it again.
  • Drink plenty of water or fluid replacement drinks. Wear appropriate athletic gear and protective equipment.
  • Take it easy when exercising in extreme weather.
