What are 5 dynamic stretches?
Dynamic stretches include movement, such as lunges with a torso twist. Static stretches, on the other hand, are where muscles are extended and held for a period of time. Some examples of static stretches include a triceps stretch or the butterfly stretch.
Is static stretching good for you?
According to Breaking Muscle, “While dynamic stretching (stretching through movement) is probably better pre-exercise, static stretching many well be the better choice for post-exercise.” Taking time to do a good warm-up, and making sure your muscles are properly ready, will make all the difference in your routine.
