A better way to stretch for movement

Did you know stretching has a progression, just like strength training? You start with static, progress to active and eventally doing dynamic.

Today I would like to talk about the value of dynamic stretching.

Dynamic Stretching are useful in developing neuro-muscular coordination for movements such as leg lifts, dance movements, kicks, and development of speed and power.

Human movement occurs in three planes of motion - front, side and rotation. When you think of our daily function, we all move in these three given planes, whether you are a construction worker, a CEO of a company or a stay home mom. Therefore, we must train our bodies to function in these planes.

Learn how to dynamically stretch effectively and improve movement. You can get a great workout as well;)
