See my review on the biomechanics wiki:
Basically, everyone should avoid both types of stretching before performing.
Btw: Is anyone left on this list?

I have heard a lot from coaching courses and workshops about the benefits
of 'dynamic' stretching warm up in contrast to more traditional 'static'
stretches, however no one has ever presented to me any particularly
convincing rationale for this popular trend (let alone evidence).
Can anyone provide me with any scientific insight into the benefits and/or
risks associated with these two kinds of stretching techniques, and why
dynamic stretches may be more advantageous than static?
