Sports is ever evolving from our practices, to hydrating, to equipment etc. So why do we still have old practices like static stretching before practice, training, & competition? In this episode I lay out some reasons that I don’t statically stretch my athletes before training. Not only does static stretching before training, competition etc decrease your performance but it also sends the wrong signals to the body. Ballistic stretching warms the core and primes the body for movement and competition. So why has this not become a phenomenon? I hope this episode helps athletes, coaches heck everyone to become better. As always remember do what legends do and BE LEGENDARY.
