Is static stretching always best?

Athletic Stretching

Don't stay still during stretching exercises, get up and move! Static stretching is effective for general flexibility but may not be sufficient for athletes, because it is not sports-specific. Dynamic muscle stretching is more effective but requires a partner and some base knowledge.
