    stretching is overrated imo :hs: i'm naturally flexible and i just dont see a point to it -- does it even reduce chance for injury?

    i should clarify , i mean static stretching. kinda curious to try dynamic stretching tho

    whats the diff?

    i hear while streching is good for you, its best to do them post WO if ur lifting heavy weights as streching pre lifting will increase chance for injuries.

    but i could be wrong, thats just what i do cuz i read it somewhere in one of my exercise science texts

    I only stretch post workout and before running or playing ball.

    I will however do some stretching before hitting legs on leg day so I can get deeper in my presses and squats.

    Dynamic stretching uses speed of movement, momentum and active muscular effort to bring about a stretch . Unlike static stretching the end position is not held. (1)
    Dynamic stretching is similar to ballistic stretching except that it avoids bouncing motions and tends to incorporate more sport-specific movements.
    Arms circles, exaggerating a kicking action and walking lunges (without weights) are examples of dynamic stretches. A walking lunge dynamically stretches the hip flexors by emphasizing hip extension and can reduce muscle tightness around the hip joint necessary for competition.
    Dynamic stretching is useful before competition and has been shown to reduce muscle tightness (2). Muscle tightness is one factor associated with an increase occurrence of musculotendinous tears (2,3). More recent scientific studies seem to suggest that dynamic stretches before competition are preferably to static stretches (4,5,6). This may be particularly true for strength and power athletes.

    pretty sure those kinds of stretches are used in that Magnificent Mobility DVD. Not 100% sure , tho.

    i guess what im wondering is if greater flexibility = less chance for injury?
