Stretching has been around for a long time.
But is it good, bad or even a good use of your time?
Well, it really depends on what you’ve read and what you think stretching is doing versus what it actually is doing.
One I always hear is “I got injured because I didn’t stretch enough” or “I’m really sore because I didn’t stretch enough” or “I can’t touch my toes because I always forget to stretch”.
Is stretching really that great that it single-handedly can prevent you from ever getting sore after a workout, help you touch your toes and or ever get injured?
Sorry, but it’s not as magical as you’re led to believe.
Sure it has its uses, but most of what you hear isn’t quite true.
