Warming up is essential for athletic performance, not only does it get the body ready to train or compete, it can improve performance and help prevent injury as well. And one of the essential parts of the warmup is stretching those muscles out. However, there has been a long time debate going on over the concept of stretching’s role in performance. Which is better static or dynamic stretching? Well the answer might not be as simple as it seems and it may not be a case of one versus the other but a proper combination of the two working together as part of regular warmup/cool down program to help reduce injuries and boost flexibility. \
