    "It is most important to use static stretching at the conclusion of the activity when muscles respond better for flexibility gains. ...Stretching in cool down should be static allowing stretches to be held for longer periods to assist recovery"
    I was under the impression after listening / reading physio/podiatry/sports science podcasts/ blogs that static stretching had NO beneficial outcomes at all.
    Any guidance appreciated, mark
