Faigenbaum, Avery; McFarland, James E., Jr.
Journal of Physical Education, Recreation & Dance (JOPERD), v78 n3 p25-28 Mar 2007
Since recent studies have not found substantial evidence to support the use of static stretching during the warm-up period, there has been a growing interest in dynamic warm-up procedures that can enhance physical fitness, improve performance, and better prepare students for the main part of physical education. In this article, the potential benefits of dynamic warm-up protocols are discussed, and guidelines for implementing dynamic warm-up exercises into physical education classes are outlined.
