3 Types of Stretching
Ballistic Stretches involve bouncing or jerking. Similar to dynamic stretching in that it involves movement. Instead of moving a body part to the end of its range of motion, however, you attempt to go beyond this range. Useful for experienced athletes not recommended for beginners.
Static Stretches is most often what comes to mind when people think of stretching. The emphasis is to focus on single muscle group. It involve flexing the muscles. This involves stretching a muscle near its furthest point and then holding that position for at least 15 or 20 seconds.
Dynamic Stretches are active movements where joints and muscles go through a full range of motion.
