Luka Kovacevic:

Roughly said, do you think that CARs, PAILs/RAILs are more effective than dynamic flexibility during warm up from the injury prevention/reduction standpoint? I guess both are needed…

Frank Duffy:

I would say CARs are more effective prior to a workout because it’s slow, controlled, dynamic movement. Whereas, PAILs/RAILs have a static component due to the isometric nature of what we are trying to acomplish. “Passive inputs yield passive results”, that’s one of my favorite quotes from FRC.

Frank is the Head Coordinator of Strength Camps at Cressey Sports Performance in Hudson, Massachusetts. Everyday, he trains individuals that have their own unique background, from a training, desired goal, and injury history perspective. He firmly believes that in order to achieve our goals, we need to keep ourselves healthy. Whether your goal is to shoot under 80 on the golf course, or play with your kids pain-free, it all starts with an educated approach to training.
