Is It Bad For You?! Stretching (Waste of Time?)
Welcome back to Chat Sh*t Get Fit - Is It Bad For You? This week we explore the rather complex world of stretching. Is stretching before a workout going to help you "limber up" or is it actually detrimental to performance? Does stretching after a workout actually do anything meaningful for recovery or is it a waste of time? These are a couple of questions we will answer this week! We also dive into (much to Tom's annoyance) the apps ROMWOD & GOWOD and why they may be more harmful than you think.
We cover a lot of different contexts in this one, static before and after and separately, dynamic stretching, intensities, durations, basically any situation for stretching is analysed and we give you the information you need to make an informed decision whether or not to use them in your training.
