Stretch before and after your j20 workout to reduce your risk of injury!
TWO TYPES OF STRETCHING – DYNAMIC & STATIC
WHAT IS DYNAMIC STRETCHING?
Dynamic stretches are a form of stretching focusing on continuous movement to bring the muscle into a stretch – they are not held. This type of stretching is best performed before your workout to help get blood flowing to the area of your body that is about to be worked. Think of dynamic stretches as a way to prime your body for the exercises that lie ahead.
EXAMPLE OF DYNAMIC: JOGGING, RUNNING IN PLACE
Core Benefits of Dynamic Stretching:
Activates the muscles that are about to be worked out
Quickly improves your range of motion
Helps with balance and coordination
Enhances muscle power and performance
WHAT IS STATIC STRETCHING?
Static stretching is the form of flexibility training that elongates the muscle by holding the stretch for a set amount of time while in a specific stretch position. Static stretches should be performed at the end of a workout to help the body cool down and prevent the muscles from tightening up after your workout.
Core Benefits of Static Stretching:
Helps the body and mind relax
Enhances muscle range of motion
