Static Stretching is slow, constant, involves reaching forward to a point of tension and holding at an end position for up to 30 seconds while Dynamic Stretching is stretching that involves movement.
For years static stretching was done in warm up/ pregame believing that it would improve performance and prevent injury. Today research has shown that static stretching can be detrimental to performance and doesn’t prevent injury.
Dynamic stretching increases core temperature, muscle temperature, elongates the muscles, stimulates the nervous system, and therefore decreases the chance of injury. Dynamic stretching involves moving parts of your body and gradually increasing reach, speed of movement, or both.
Therefore Dynamic Stretching in warm up before WOD and Static Stretching after the WOD in cool down will improve performance and aid in recovery.

“Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it.
Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion.
Impossible is not a declaration. It’s a dare.
Impossible is potential.
Impossible is temporary.
Impossible is nothing.”
