The race actually begins well before you line up at the start.
Can you spare 5, maybe 10 minutes for a better run?
Dynamic stretching has to become your new favorite thing as you will find yourself running better and staying injury free.
Not only you will prepare your legs for the early kilometers, but it is critical to preventing muscle cramps late in the race.
- Better efficiency of joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments
- Better range of motion
- Increased oxygen availability
- Increased lung capacity
- Release of stored fat for energy
- Creates a routine for mental preparation
Dynamic stretching warms and powers up the muscles, increasing the range of motion.
On the contrary, traditional static stretching is used to elongate muscles, which prior to running can cause injury.
