Abstract

Active dynamic stretching (ADS) is a bouncing, rhythmic motion that causes lengthen of the muscle (BANDY et al., 1998). Only few studies have investigated the effects of dynamic stretching programs on the range of motion (ROM). There are few investigations that provide information about the effectiveness of different active dynamic stretch loads. The purpose of this study was to compare the effect of two different active dynamic stretch frequencies on the gain of the range of motion ROM.
