The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    stretching

    Hello,

    How many times do you guys stretch when working out? I usually stretch for a couple of minutes before the first excercise of the body part im working out and thats it.. should I be stretching before every excercise?

    Thanks

    I don't stretch before lifting, just do light warm up sets. I stretch afterwards though.

    I also do warm up weights for every excercise. Do you stretch after every excercise or after the complete workout?

    thx

    I stretch a bit after the whole workout.

    For squats/deads I warm up, and do some light stretching. before and in between sets. If I don't loosen my muscles I can't get my form correct. For other stuff like benching/etc I don't do anything till after.

    Dynamic Stretching for Dynamic people. Read it.

    Dynamic, or Static.

    I stretch briefly before, and stretch longer after.
    Starting over...
