I really like these articles, they seem to come from a very unbiased viewpoint.

It is a bit quiet on here, just thought some people may like something to read.

Stretching might be overrated. I can vaguely remember an ex AFL coach (with a sports science background) saying maybe its not necessary to stretch, you don't see rabbits, dogs, cats etc warm up before they sprint after something!!!!!

Legendary coach Butch Roberts (trainer of dual Stawell Gift winner Barry Foley) use to say that you never saw a cheetah stretch for before it sprinted off. He didn't have anything against stretching per se, it was more, the time athletes took to stretch that irked him.

Stretching [ static ] after racing/workout has been out of fashion in fitness centres for some time. Not saying this is right as these things change on a regular basis. 'Experts' believe that only way to warm down is by rollers or massage. On the flip side it is incredible the number of athletes who do a static stretch before competing. I can understand old athletes where old habits are hard to change or uncoached athletes but others is hard to comprehend.
