Yep, this kinda crap.theadonisking wrote: ↑ Well if you understand how neurolophysiology works, you'll notice that if you stop stretching lose mobility, it's because your nervous system regulates the length of the muscles to stabilize the joints as much as possible.
Static stretching also weakens the muscle because you desensitize the stretch reflex, and with that comes a higher risk of injury, that's one reason why static stretching is contrindicated pre workout.
Im middle age and healthy, comes down to good diet and excercise. Want to plant yourself all day in a chair and not do anything else, your gonna have problems
I do static strecting post workouts, and have for decades. And if I go for a jog, I sometimes to pre workout. I never stretch cold, unless you count a desk stretch in your chair wrong
Even if it is, dont care. I can look down and see my dick without a belly in the way, unlike a ton of people my age I know.
