Dynamic vs Static Stretching
DYNAMIC STRETCHES VS STATIC STRETCHES?
Many people tend to use static stretches before their workout, however dynamic stretching is a better option before your workout and static stretching is best afterwards.
Dynamic stretches are a form of active movement taking your body through ranges of motion. This is ideal prior to exercise to prepare the joints for movement and muscles for optimal activation.
Static stretches are the opposite, you hold a stretch in position for an extended amount of time. Static stretches are better used for cooling down as they relax the muscle.
