    When i was doing a lot of striking arts I find that dynamic stretching in the morning and as a warm up exercise worked a treat.

    Yeah that's the method that Kurz recommends in his book.

    I always do these before BJJ or MT. Gradually increase ROM and keep it controlled. Don't just fling your leg out as far and fast as possible as you'll likely pull something!

    Few more ideas, even though some look silly, lol

    When i do the dynamic stretching, like frontal raises, side raises and rear raises, how fast should i be doing them. Is it better to go slow?

    Start slow, and add speed only when you can control them. If your muscles start to contract, you are doing them too fast and/or far. When you get better, speed should be closer to actual speed of your kick, but not 100%.

    For dynamic stretching, I've been working with Intu-Flow and Prasara yoga from RMAX ( www.rmaxinternational.com ) and I rarely get stiff or sore, even after heavy workouts. I have also become much more relaxed in my movements as I become able to move smoothly with greater range of motion.

    That said, sometimes I will do some extra stretching following a workout, or between workouts. It's fun and feels good when you do it right.

    Yes did you? MTReg asked what stretches we do and if we could give a brief routine for him to follow and those are the ones I do.
