Do Not Strech Muscles Befor Working those muscles!
I am going to tell you something that will suprise a lot of you,Do NOT stretch your muscles befor you work out!
Research has shown that a pre weith training stretching will reduce your muscle strength by as much as 28%.Instead odf stretching befor you workout just do some lifting with lighter weights to get warmed up first witch will help prevent injury.
After you are done with you weight training do some deep stretching on the muscles you have worked trained.
It is believed That this will strech the fascia (the menbrane that encases the muscles) and giive your muscles more room to grow,the streching will also cause micro tears the muscle and when the muscles repair these tears it will be bigger and stronger.(when ever you train intensely your are tearing down the muscle tissue) .
The growth occurs when your body muscle repairs the muscles). But when you strech the muscles after a workout you do have to make it a nice deep stretch ,you must really feel the stretch in the muscle or muscle groups.
