Static exercises are movements you perform to prepare your body for more strenuous activity. Different than a traditional warm-up, these exercises use integrated movements in an active, full range of motion to prepare your muscles and joints for the work to come. Dynamic Stretching is a form of stretching beneficial in sports utilizing momentum from form and the momentum from static-active stretching strength in an effort to propel the muscle into an extended range of motion not exceeding one’s static-passive stretching ability. Before any serious workout or practice session, soccer players should always be sure to warm up the muscles that contribute most to strong performance in this game. These include the hip flexors, the hamstrings, the quads, and the glutes—all the muscles in the hips, legs, and core that generate drive, agility, and speed.
