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.

The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much, it is whether we provide enough for those who have little.

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.
