It is important to cool down after a moderate- to high-intensity exercise session. This prevents sudden pooling of blood in the muscles as well as sudden drops in blood pressure that can lead to dizziness and falls. During the last 5-10 minutes of your workout, gradually decrease your exercise intensity and gently approach your resting
heart rate before coming to a complete stop.
