Pretty much I believe all these stretches fall under these two catagories dynamic and static, dynamic more appropriate for warm-up, & static for cool down. I read this info.,
Just as there are different types of flexibility, there are also different types of stretching. Stretches are either dynamic (meaning they involve motion) or static (meaning they involve no motion). Dynamic stretches affect dynamic flexibility and static stretches affect static flexibility (and dynamic flexibility to some degree).
The different types of stretching are:
1. ballistic stretching
2. dynamic stretching
3. active stretching
4. passive (or relaxed) stretching
5. static stretching
6. isometric stretching
7. PNF stretching
Could you give me a suggestion on which ones would be more appropriate for me a (sprinter). What would be most appropriate for workouts and competing.
