    Everybody's stretching routines

    I was curious as to how everybody impliments stretching into their overall workout plan.

    How long? How often? When?

    I usually just do a half-ass job of stretching the target muscle groups immediately before training, but I am considering doing a more overall stretching routine at night. I feel that a lack of flexibility in my hams is affecting my deadlift and squats.

    Let us know your approach to stretching!

    Never heard of it before. Is it a new lifting technique?

    "Test all things; hold fast what is good.": 1 Thessalonians 5:21

    "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"

    I dont really have a stretch incorporated in my workout routine but I have thought about doing them at other times ( not during my workout ) to try and get some more overall flexibility in me as im not happy with how it is at the moment.

    Im very inflexible even though I stretch all the time in soccer, wrestling, and baseball. If I don't stretch after my workouts, espicially legs, the soreness last a lot longer and I wouldn't be able to squat as low as I can. I know that.

    I heard stretching after you work a muscle is the best time to do it.

    after work outs is good.

    Ditto on the stretching afterwards bit.
    On leg day I cycle for ten minutes, stretch for a few more...then go on to the routine. Afterwards I stretch for about ten minutes. I do this because of old injuries though.
