The KIN is IN: Stretching for Performance

Interesting read (although we’ve been teaching something similar to this for a while now – but good to have back-up research).

Pre-exercise stretching is generally unnecessary and likely counterproductive.  More appropriately – actively warm up before an exercise session.  Findings of pre-workout stretching:  

  • Muscle power generally fell by about 2% after stretching  
  • Volunteers managed 8.3% less weight after static stretching during warm-up

Conclusion: Perform a dynamic warm-up – moving the muscles to be used during the workout.
