Reasons Not To Stretch "More fundamentally, the results underscore the importance of not
prepping for exercise by stretching, he said. “We can now say for sure
that static stretching alone is not recommended as an appropriate form
of warm-up,” he said. “A warm-up should improve performance,” he pointed
out, not worsen it.
A better choice, he continued, is to warm-up dynamically, by moving
the muscles that will be called upon in your workout. Jumping jacks and
toy-soldier-like high leg kicks, for instance, prepare muscles for
additional exercise better than stretching. As an unscientific side
benefit, they can also be fun."—Gretchen Reynolds, NY Times
