Stretching
 
Stretch all the major muscle groups used when playing sport. Choose ‘dynamic’ or ‘static’ methods

Dynamic stretching involves stretching movements performed at gradually increased speed.

Static stretching involves placing a muscle in its most lengthened position and holding for at least 30 seconds.
 
 
  The keys to Effective Static Stretching
 
    Do some light aerobic exercise before starting stretching
    Breathe normally
    Apply each stretch slowly – take it to where tension can be felt, but not pain
    Hold each stretch for at least 30 seconds
    Don’t bounce up and down while stretching
 

  Stretch all major muscles, especially those that will have a large demand placed on them
