Dynamic Stretching vs Static Stretching

The Winter sports season is about to kick off and we all want to get through to the finals playing our best and avoiding injuries. Whether you are running out onto the soccer field, footy field, hockey field or netball court, an essential way to help ensure this is a good warm up.
