warm down

warm down

To engage in mild or gentle exercise as a means of slowly transitioning one's body to a resting state after more intense activity. I like to go on a stationary bike for 20 minutes or so to warm down after a hard workout. Warming down after such intense conditioning is really important if you want to avoid injuries.
