Dynamic Warm Up

Dynamic warm up stretches mimic the movements used in the sport or activity about to be performed. Dynamic warm-ups will prepare the muscles for activity by increasing blood flow and muscle temperature.  For example if you are preparing  to play tennis, you may want to practice side and front lunges as part of the warm up.  These are the  movements you will use to allow you to reach for the ball.

If you are going for a walk, you may want to start at a slower pace and gradually pick up speed.

Go through a smaller range of motion to start with, for instance,  a half-squat instead of  a full squat until you are warmed up enough.
