Ballistic Stretching

uses the momentum of the body or a limb to stretch muscles farther and faster than other techniques. Often confused with dynamic stretching, ballistic stretching involves bouncing into and out of a stretched position using the muscles as springs. Both techniques use movement during the stretch, however the dynamic stretch does not push muscles past their normal range of motion. The ballistic action/stretch can be added to most end range positions.
