Dynamic Motivation with Skills and Drills
Since the current practice of warm-up static stretching has been based more on intuition than scientific evidence, there has been a growing interest in warm-up procedures that involve the performance of dynamic movements that enhance motor unit excitability, improve kinesthetic awareness, maximize active ranges of motion and develop fundamental movement skills by reinforcing critical movement patterns. Moreover, dynamic warm-up activities can set the tone for physical education class and sports practice by establishing a desired tempo for upcoming activities. In this lecture, scientific evidence supporting dynamic warm-up activities will be discussed and examples of dynamic warm-up activities will be described.
