I think both have their benefits and I’m no expert but dynamic seems to be good for warm ups and static for cool downs. However, sometimes I mix it up depending on my workout and what junctions need that rush of blood.
I honestly prefer a bit of both. I first do some dynamic stretching in the beginning and then do static at the end. To me it makes a lot of sense. Especially when doing a workout because with dynamic stretching you get a bit warmed up. Then when you do static stretching at the end you cool down a bit. So the answer, for me at least, is both.
Ros Ria Q.
I think i dont prefer one more then the other. I enjoy static stretching on a lazy afternoon while reading a book a dynamic on an early start to a busy day.
