If you have chronically tight muscles like some elite athletes do then yes it's helpful to loosen stuff up significant before you workout, especially hip flexors.

There's no real set rules... I mean I try to delineate some here:

But it all depends on the athlete and what you're trying to work on with them. He works with Hockey player so.... there ya go
