The following article is from the Journal of Strength and Conditioning. The study observes the effects of static and dynamic stretching on trained individuals. Results from both types of stretches were observed separately and collectively. The study found that trained individuals who would like to participate in static stretching do need to incorporate a dynamic warm up to achieve optimal effects. It is recommended that trained individuals create a dynamic warm up that is specific to their sport and or activity. This article is relevant to the dynamic warm ups we participated in on Thursday. When participating in dynamic warm ups we can allow adequate muscles to be warmed up to reduce injury rate.
