A dynamic warmup routine should be performed prior to activity to prepare the body for the demands of a workout. Dynamic movements are the best way to prepare your body for dynamic workouts. Contrary to old beliefs, the best time to work on static flexibility is at the end of your workout, not in the beginning. After every workout, you should follow a total body static stretching series.

The great thing about a comprehensive dynamic warmup routine is that it does not take any more time than the more traditional stretching method, but is much more focused, effective, and productive. Since your warmup routine sets the tone for the entire workout, these are just the qualities you should be looking for.

The specific advantages of a dynamic warmup routine, by comparison with the more traditional “sit and stretch” routine, are as follows:
