Exercising Myths

exercising myths on CNN got this from Becc

Interesting take on many long standing beliefs. I have never thought stretching did much either. I rarely ever stretch before doing anything. Rarely ever pulled any muscles despite not doing it either. Glad to see someone on my side for once.


I knew about the monitors. I've stopped using the cardio setting on the elliptical likw i did when i started. Now i just run on manual/free run mode

I've seen plenty of people over stretch or cause injuries by stretching improperly. From my experience it's more beneficial to properly warm up before a workout. You should also always warm up before stretching if you so choose. Stretching cold muscles is an easy way to hurt yourself.

Good article.

Yeah, it may have something to do with the type of muscle built (slow twitch/fast twitch) simply due to the endurance aspect but I've never seen any evidence to support that one.

Neither study cited in that article makes any mention of reducing injury. One aims at the "development of post-exercisemuscle soreness" without defining the cause of the soreness. The second suggests extended static stretching might reduce athletic performance on the same day.

In fact Madison Park, the writer of this CNN article offers zero supporting evidence to her bullet claim. After about 2 minutes of research on the writer I wouldn't take any of her writing as sound advice.

the routine i was taught:
warm up motions (jogs, jump jacks, lunges-plyometric stuff, arm circles, swim motions)

then ballistic stretching ("dynamic" in that article) there are many ways here. a lot is very close to a warm up look.

then depending on what your game/sport is, some static stretching (muscle specific) after you are warm.

my game was hockey, jogs and jacks to get warm, ballistics started with arms and body, then legs, then some static-GROINS mainly. then skates on, hit the ice, get the body warmed up, wake the hands by shooting. game on. check..score....fight? maybe

a lot of the warmup routine from P90X goes this kind of route. its a good one to look at for ideas on how to get the body ready for a butt kicking. also look at some yoga motions. i was amazed at how many really were a mix breed of static and ballistic stretches. i had to use it for some recovery therapy after getting repairs. you will be amazed too.
