ABSTRACT A DYNAMIC STRETCHING PROTOCOL IN A RECENT STUDY CAUSED A DECLINE IN HAMSTRINGS STRENGTH, LOWERING THE HAMSTRING-QUADRICEPS RATIO, WHICH COULD TRANSLATE INTO A HIGHER INJURY RISK DURING A SPORTS PERFORMANCE THAT MAY FOLLOW. THE POTENTIAL EFFECTS OF A STRETCHING PROTOCOL SHOULD BE WELL UNDERSTOOD BEFORE ITS INCORPORATION IN A WARM-UP.
