Dynamic Warm-Up

A Dynamic Warm-Up is a series of movements that are designed to actively prepare the muscles for performance. A proper dynamic warm-up will:
  • Activate, energize and prime the muscles. It prepares the body for peak performance! 
  • Activate the nervous system, which enhances coordination and motor ability. This is especially beneficial for younger athletes who are still learning their bodies. 
  • Raise the body's core temperature. This will increase the elasticity of muscles, tendons, ligaments and overall joint structure. This also improves your range of motion and increases flexibility. 
  • Prepares the mind for the practice or game ahead. As we know, baseball is a mental game and proper mental preparation is vital to maximizing your success.
