Daily Stretching Routine for Muay Thai

pdf can be downloaded near the bottom…

To build dynamic flexibility, you will need to stretch dynamically with ballistic stretches such as leg swings.

Note that the risk of injury is quite high when compared to static stretching.

To mitigate the risk of injury, make sure you get as warm as possible. Go for a run, have a hot bath, do whatever you need to do to raise your muscle temperature. Chewing ginger actually helps quite a bit!
