Now, if you have mobility issues obviously you may need to address this with flexibility or mobility work. Like I said in the article to perform exercises with good technique they may need to stretch at the expensive of a small amount of strength/power output.

On the other hand, if you don't need to do this then do your joint/mobility warmups. Then static stretch after if you're getting tight.

There's nothing that hard about I don't think? If you're still confused uhh ask your Q a diferent way?

why or How does static stretching decrease power or strength output?
