Acute effects of static and dynamic stretching on leg flexor and extensor isokinetic strength in elite women athletes

The aim of this study was to explore the effects of static and dynamic stretching of the leg flexors and extensors on concentric and eccentric peak torque and electromyography amplitude of the leg extensors and flexors in women athletes

Scholarcy highlights

  • The aim of this study was to explore the effects of static and dynamic stretching of the leg flexors and extensors on concentric and eccentric peak torque and electromyography amplitude of the leg extensors and flexors in women athletes
  • A significant increase was observed after dynamic stretching for these strength parameters
  • Our findings suggest that dynamic stretching, as opposed to static or no stretching, may be an effective technique for enhancing muscle performance during the pre‐competition warm‐up routine in elite women athletes
