I have to agree. Stretching before, during, or after exercising does give me more flexibility. These examples will assure I am doing them correctly so as not to cause injury to myself.

Stretching is awsome-plain and simple. I used to be involved in martial arts, and even being a guy of my size was able to move in ways that most people couldn't. Now after nearly 15 years out of practice, I can barely touch my toes! lol. I'm planning to start tomorrow at stretching again though. In addition to safety issues, stretching five you an overall healthy feeling much in the same way exercise does if you do it properly and consistently. Visit my sparkpage! I'm always open to other ideas and more friends!
I walk on treadmilll for 5 minutes to warm up leg and arm muscles before doing a few stretches on the main muscles that i am going to work and then after my workout strech all over body muscles. Keep movin'
