When should I stretch?

Knowing When to Stretch

While it is important to stretch to maintain flexibilty, studies show that when you stretch is also very important. You should always warm up before you stretch. Stretching a cold muscle can not only cause injury, it won't do you much good. To warm up, try walking briskly or doing a few minutes of your activity at a low intensity before you stretch. You can then safely continue with the remainder of your workout.
