Hey i am strength training for basketball. I do a fullbody lifting workout. I stretch all my muscles before I beging my lifting. And then after I am done with my workout, I do the same stretching routine. Is that okay? Will doing so affect my size or strength gains?
I also stretch in the middle of my workouts sometimes. Like right before I am about to do tricep extentions I might stretch my triceps a little bit. Or right after I do lunges I might touch my toes to stretch my hamstrings. Is that okay?
When are the best times to stretch?
(also, is it good to stretch after sprinting/running workout?)
