Stretching and Flexibility

Flexibility increases athletic performance and decreases the risk of injury. Formerly, most athletes statically stretched before training or competition. It is now believed that this time-honored practice may do more harm than good. If you want to perform static stretching it should be done after a workout or at least 2 hours before training or competition. It is best to perform dynamic stretching in preparation for activity.
