Static Stretching -Is it beneficial??
I’d like to thank my new friend Dan O’Connor for this link on static stretching.
There was no difference between the 2 study groups with respect to rate of injury. It was quite an extensive study.
With respect to warm ups, I have been using Joe DeFranco’s and Jim Smith’s AMPED warm ups lately and I have really enjoyed them. They are dynamic and different and I feel a lot better heading into my workouts and they have great routines for off days that seem to speed recovery. It is about the same cost as a personal training session. A good investment for yourself or any of the athletes and clients that you may work with.
PS – Now that we are pretty settled in our new place I hope to be back at this on a more regular basis sharing different health and wellness ideas.
