Dynamic Stretching became popular approximately 10 years ago as a more effective way to warm up the body pre workout for beginners to professional athletes. Dynamic meaning you are moving while stretching versus the old school static stretching – holding a stretch movement for 15+ seconds while not moving.
Dynamic stretching activates multiple muscle groups simultaneously and helps to improve your overall range of motion allowing you to feel more limber. Being more limber also awakens your body awareness, forcing you to work on your balance, thus improving your coordination. Studies have shown that these types of warm ups improve muscular power and performance – pretty cool, right?!
