In this segment, University of Kansas Assistant Coach, Elisha Brewer has her athletes demonstrate a “Straight Leg Stretch” and a “Roll Over” exercise. Another effective stretching drill that is covered in this section is the “Walk Out” drill. This drill also focuses on stretching out the hamstrings while also requiring the athlete to use core and upper body strength to help with balance.
Coach Brewer’s finest point in the Dynamic Stretch portion of this video is that “you’re focusing on improving your flexibility over time. Flexibility can be improved upon: that is something that can be improved upon on by focusing on it on a daily basis.”
