Warming up is very important when it comes to exercising. Cold muscles get less oxygen and that makes it more difficult for the body to remove waste products like carbon dioxide and lactic acid from them. Exercising with cold muscles makes it harder for them to burn fatty acids which then get clogged in the arteries. Cold muscles are less responsive to signals from the nervous system so movements are less coordinated. They are also less elastic and don't absorb shock or impact as well as warm muscles which then make them more prone to injury. So before every workout it is VERY important to do a quick warm-up before increasing the intensity.
