Dynamic Warmup


Dynamic Warm-up:

Warming up the body through movement. It only takes a few muscle contractions for the body to heat up. We want clients to be warm, but not too limber because we still want to maintain a strong base of support for the duration of the class. Why dynamic? 

• A warm muscle contracts more forcefully and relaxes more quickly
• Prevents injury
• Improves coordination
• Improves musicality
• Increases range of motion
• Reduces risk of injury
• Increases body temperature
