Dynamic Stretching

Moving a muscle through its full range of motion and creating force is essentially known as dynamic stretching. The soft tissues are improved through a process of reciprocal inhibition similarly to active stretching where one muscle relaxes while the other contracts. They’re great for warming up before intense sports as long as there aren’t any other issues present. One set of ten reps and a variety of dynamic stretches should suffice.

Examples of dynamic stretching:

  • Prisoner Squat
  • Multiplanar Lunge with Reach
  • Single-Leg Squat Touchdown
  • Tube Walking Side-to-Side
  • Medicine Ball Lift and Chop
