Fit Tip: Cool Down After Lifting

Even if you're only lifting weights or doing body resistance exercises, you should still cool down. A great cool down for your lifting days is stretching the worked muscles for five minutes. Then using a foam roller over the worked body parts for another five minutes. Your tired muscles will appreciate the love after making them work so hard.
