    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...
