Move, Mobilize, Brakes, & Burst
A dynamic warm-up will focus on full-body movement with multiple muscle groups being worked on at once. When done right, a dynamic warm-up can improve your athletic performance and also help reduce the risk of injury.
Dynamic activities and sport-specific movements help maximize active ranges of motion at different movement-specific speeds while preparing the body for the demands of sport training and competition
It is important to realize that warming up and stretching are two different activities. A warm-up consists of preparatory activities and functionally based movements that are specifically designed to prepare the body for exercise or sport. In contrast, the primary goal of stretching is to enhance flexibility.
Dr. Funk breaks down 4 phases of a proper dynamic warm-up that can easily be implemented into your, or a teams, warm-up routine.
