Dynamic Warm-up or Functional Stretching is crucial to each training session. In order to increase strength and power output, it is best to start with dynamic stretching and leave the static stretching for post-workout.

Dynamic warm-up usually comes after a general warm-up or light cardiovascular activity.

Here are a few exercises that could be added to your warm-up.

1. Glute bridge to single leg hip flexion x 10

2. Body Weight Squat x10

3. Body Weight Squat to Squat hold x 5 reps and hold for 5

4. Quad Stretch x10

5. Hamstring Stretch x 10

6. Circumduction with resistance x 10 (each way)

7. Arm action with resistance x 15 sec x 2

8. Broad Jumps x 10
