Recently it was suggested to me that I should stretch my muscles prior to workouts as a form of warming up and in order to prevent injury. I found this strange and awkward but I could not put into words. So in reading I found two articles. Steven Lowes and another. Here they are: I dont believe that stretching is a form of warming up, and that joint mobility is far more important. I am more convinced that static stretching prior workout can cause injury in certain types of movements. What else am I missing here??
