After reading the stretching round table and taking 4 advil to subdue the technical migrane that followed, I have come to the realization that I know shit about stretching.
I need some help simplifying it (read dumbing it down) so that an english major can understand the difference between dynamic and static stretching.
I understood from the roundtable that certain stretching actually minimizes strength and leaves you vulnerable to injuries, yet other types of stretching are benificial. I was wondering if someone could explain, with examples, the differences between the two and also when to use them and for how long?
thanks in advance,
