Don’t (static) stretch before working out

Video: http://www.techinsider.io/stretching-before-after-workout-2015-11

Key points:

  • static stretching a cold muscle risks injury
  • stretch with dynamic warmups instead: go through full range of motion
  • similar to doing very light sets before weight training
  • consistent static stretching after workouts is good
