what is ballistic stretching

A ballistic stretch characteristically involves active muscular exertion and uses a ‘bouncing-type’ movement in which the end point is not held. It is frequently used in the pre-exercise warm-up; yet, it may possibly injure muscles or connective tissues, particularly when there has been a prior injury. Ballistic stretching typically triggers the stretch reflex that does not permit the involved muscles to relax and defeats the purpose of stretching.
