Why Dynamic Warm-ups?
Static stretching has been popular for a long time, but here are a few reasons dynamic stretching can work for you.
- Activate the muscles you'll use in your workout - engage hips, legs, and core muscles.
- Improve your range of motion, and you feel more limber.
- Increase body awareness, so your balance and coordination is better.
- Enhance muscular performance and power by adding motion to your warm up.
