    Post Stretching

    The Evening News the other day informed us of a New Study, finding it best to "Stretch" AFTER workouts not Before? This is "News" to me? lol. What do you all know about this?

    It is better to stretch afterwards. Stretching before provides no real benefit, and will lower the maximum amount of weight you can lift.

    I agree with you....I find stretching a waste of time. (example.....doing stiff legged dead lifts. You are definetely stretching your hams during the excercise itself)

    Stretching is optimal for hypertrophy when done right after an exercise.. so I wouldnt dismiss it all together.

    True, but if you dont have the time or energy I believe you can stretch while traing the muscle. I work alot and have a son so 2 hours in the gym is plenty everyday. When I get home I relax and im definetely not going to waste my time stretching at the gym.

    i recently took up "Chi Kung" a stretching technique of Tai Chi. Both the Book & Video of "Tai Chi for beginners with David Carradine" is great. I am amazed at the results of "Chi Kung" and the nice fluid motion that stretches the body good. Lots of different excercises to focus on 2: Back, Neck, Shoulders... and my favorite is the "Wrist" sounds silly but as u know the PC can wreak havoc on our fingers, Wrist and forearms. i find "Chi Kung" really stretches and extends those important PC muscles.

    alot of people neglect flexibility, core stability and balance, disiplinces like pilates are much more benificial then the typical gym rat crunches routines you see in bodybuilding books. "bodybuilder style" abs are commonly "are all show no go" these individuals lack strength throughout the core
