What’s the best time to stretch?

Women's Health Australia - - BEST BODY -

“Hold­ing a stretch for longer than 60 sec­onds be­fore a strength-train­ing ses­sion can ex­ac­er­bate the cel­lu­lar dam­age, cause a lack of con­trol over work­ing mus­cles and lead to in­jury,” says Pro­fes­sor Kay. Yikes. Stretch­ing at the end of the ses­sion, how­ever, will help to pre­vent this un­for­tu­nate out­come – as well as stop­ping blood from pool­ing and caus­ing sore­ness in the mus­cles you worked the next day. In short: all the wins.
