Benefits of A Dynamic Warmup

I

Dynamic warmup is using movement to stretch and warm up certain muscles or muscle groups. Dynamic stretching uses movements like squats, lunges, different types of rotations,.. and transforms them into stretches.  There are many advantages to a dynamic warm up.

1 One of the main advantages of dynamic stretching is warming up the muscles to their working temperature, stretching them and therefore improving their function. With static stretching you lengthen the muscle and you might be feeling that it is working better, but many times its performance is lowered by this.

2Dynamic stretching will prepare you better for high intensity exercises. Your body needs to be ready for what is coming and static stretching will not help it as it will only loosen your muscles.

3Another advantage is mental aspect of dynamic stretching. It will prepare you better for your training session than static stretching that has the potential to make you rather sleepy.

4Dynamic stretching will also improve your mobility both in short term (as a warm up for a workout) and long term while helping you reduce the probability of injury and it will likely positively affect your performance.
