    Stretching........

    Is it worth it to stretch before you lift.. I hear it reduces the amount you can do.. But will it reduce soreness?

    As far as I know, it will not reduce muscle soreness if you stretch before, but will help if you stretch during and after. I wouldnt bother to stretch too much before your workout, it won't do much for you.

    Stretch the bodypart you are training as soon as you are done...do not stretch it before.
