If you watch an animal when it wakes up, it progressively moves its body every which way, one motion tumbling into the next in a primal organic sequence. It also contracts its muscles while it is lengthening them to maximize the internal friction and hasten fluids back into the muscles, connective tissues and joints.
The specialized fibers within our muscles that contract at a fast rate to maximize power and force need to be trained and turned on in order to make fast movements on the playing field or dance floor. Dynamic stretching has been proven to stimulate these responses within our muscles. So performing a dynamic stretch before engaging in sports is very beneficial.
Keep your shoulders healthy and functioning well for tennis, golf, hockey and any other sports you play with the Pranic Bath dynamic stretch below (and also on the 10 Minute Quick Fix Shoulders video):
