Dynamic Flexibility At Speed And Power Camp

Your dynamic flexibility is important if you want to be a top level athlete. Athletes at Sports Fitness Hut's Speed and Power Camp worked on dynamic flexibility every day.

See Speed Camp Youtube video!

An effective dynamic warmup is a MUST before your workout or game. A dynamic warmup will prepare your body best for practice or games. Do static stretches after your workout or game (when muscles are warm) to increase your range of motion.

Accomplish the following during your dynamic warmup:

1. Make sure your "power center" is flexible. An athlete's "power center" consists of the glutes, hips, quadriceps and hamstrings. This area of your body is prone to some hard-to-recover-from injuries!

2. Your hip flexors need to flexible. Tight hip flexors cause many problems, including problems with your glutes and hamstrings.

3. When you warmup, practice relaxing your face, shoulders, arms and torso. You will perform better when you are relaxed and you want your body to work like a "well oiled machine."

Some good dynamic warmup exercises are back pedals, lunges, step ups, cariocas, form running, shuffles, heel sprints, ankle bounces, bounding, prancing and jump rope.
