the Importance of Stretching

Diana Solares, Physical Therapist with West Kendall Baptist Hospital, says it has been shown that stretching for static holds for a long time prior to any kind of strength training increases the rate of injury.

She recommends doing more dynamic movements while stretching, but not holding the position. "Another way is ramping up. If you're going to squat you should squat with baby weight and then increase the weight until you get the weight that you were planning on using," says Brian Betancourt, Exercise Physiologist with Baptist Health South Florida.
