Countdown to Change: Dynamic Warm-up


Dynamic stretching, or stretching that requires movement, is the ideal form of warm-up for any type of physical activity. Unlike static stretching, which weakens the muscles, dynamic stretching can actually improve the power of muscular performance. Dynamic stretches have other benefits as well like improved range of motion and balance and coordination skills.
