Enough with the static stretching already

As readers of this blog know, I am not a big fan of static stretching. Don't get me wrong, if you have any pain and/or movement issues you need to get them fixed ASAP; but I don't feel static stretching is the most effective solution. I think you can use mobility work for all your static stretching needs. Here are some related posts
