  • This is good info to know. It is the complete opposite than what I've always known. In the Army, we stretched before and after our morning PT sessions. Before was warm up and after was cool down. - 1/8/2017 5:05:50 PM

    Stretching before workout helps get blood moving in the muscles. - 9/26/2015 10:32:35 PM

    Comcast cable, if that's your cable provider, has lots of great exercise videos at no cost. Go to "On Demand" the "Fitness" and navigate options from there.... - 9/26/2015 10:31:38 PM

    I see this article has been around for a while... I found it interesting and informative. It is contrary to what I have been taught - to do some stretching prior to a workout. I learned that pre-workout stretching is recommended since prior to a workout, they have been "relaxed." I will have to research this further. I would appreciate if anyone could shed some more references and information. Thanks! - 2/21/2013 7:55:48 AM
  • so glad this article reminds to stretch after the work out and not before, I see so many people stretching before hand and it can lead to injury...the best is to warm up for a few minutes on the treadmill - 3/13/2012 12:14:16 PM
  • This article comes at a perfect time. I tried doing yoga today at the gym, and was so inflexible that I had to leave the class. I realize I never stretch before or after classes. Starting tomorrow I will do so! - 3/2/2012 12:24:24 AM
  • Stretching is my favorite part of a workout! I love savoring in the feeling of accomplishment for how hard I just worked, while giving my muscles and joints a reward for their effort. And it just feels so good! I've always been a big fan of stretching, since I started playing peewee softball at age 9, and as a result, I have a decent range of motion.
    It's a shame my gym doesn't feel the same way about stretching - there's hardly any floor space to stretch out after a workout, and I'm often battling with people doing strength training... - 3/1/2012 11:41:10 AM

    Stretching is a must after every excercie routine,it also helps too down properly. - 5/16/2011 11:38:29 AM
  • Very helpful information. Will add to my workout routine. - 4/1/2011 2:57:52 PM
  • I like that I am releasing unwanted toxins and waste products when stretching as well as relaxing the muscle group and gaining improved flexibiltiy. - 3/5/2011 9:28:03 PM
  • An all stretching video would be great. I have a Karen Voight Pure & Simple Stretch tape (yeah, tape!) that I love & need to do more often. Thanks for the article! I've been trying to make regular stretching more of a routine. Thanks for the motivation! - 11/5/2010 2:58:02 PM

    I'm so glad I read this! I've been stretching out in the pool after I slowly jog my first half-lap (25 meters) I'll stop now.

    But I do LU-U-UV my post-jogging stretch! Especially when it's relatively quiet in the pool.
