Stretching good or bad?!


Posted by amy l.

There are many recent studies and researched literature that have inconclusive evidence or contradict with other sources. More detailed evidence, especially pertaining to time, intensity, and repetition of stretches are needed. Stretching may be able to help athletic performance in some situations, but the most recent literature claims that pre-exercise stretching is detrimental to performance. Not all possible outlets of stretching have been explored; therefore no specific claim can be made about the benefits of stretching.
