Dynamic Stretching vs. Static Stretching for Runners

Static Stretching is any stretch pose that you hold for more that 30sec or a long duration. This most commonly what runners end up doing before a run. But the opposite is required which is Dynamic Stretching that engages a few muscle groups at one go. This is ideal the better approach, meaning do dynamic stretches before you run and static stretches after you finish a run. The video bellow outlines some examples of dynamic stretching ... remember always STREEETCCHHHH :)
