I've been reading a lot lately about the benefits of dynamic stretching. A lot of the articles I've been reading state that dynamic stretching is much better right before power events like the jumps, throws and sprints.
The question I have for you all, is how much dynamic stretching one should do and for how long?
Also, and something I'd really like to learn more about is when should static stretching be done?
Most articles I've read say that static stretching should be done minimally right before events and should be done more earlier in the day when the muscles are tight and after the power events (jump, throw, sprint) is over.
Any ideas and or links to any articles on this info would be greatly appreciated, I'm starting up a new warm-up routine for the team next week if the weather cooperates and I want to have some nice easy to understand tidbits to share with the kids on why we are moving more in the direction of dynamic stretching or depending on the feedback of this forum how much I should really limit static stretching
