Starting off basic with dynamic stretching for the hips and adductors on the wall for this first installment of Head Kicks for Heavyweights! The key to dynamic stretching is a “Less is More” approach. You want to just barely go past the reflex barrier where the slack is taken out of the muscle, not force it closer to the mechanical barrier where it’s at risk of tearing.
Dynamic stretching has been shown not only to be just as effective as static stretching for increasing flexibility, but also decreases the risk of injury before activity. Keep your leg relaxed, and try to turn the hips to throw the leg up. Elevate the standing foot a bit so you don’t hit the floor.
