With crisper autumn temperatures upon us, it is critically important more than ever to adequately prepare your muscles for movin’ in the chilly weather. We recommend doing a dynamic warm-up, i.e. non-static stretching. A dynamic warm-up helps prime your muscles for what the type of activity that they’re about to perform, MOVEMENT, in a way that static stretching does not. Though don’t get us wrong, we highly recommend static stretching post-run.
