Stretching…. should be done before or after exercises or should you avoid them altogether? Anchored for a long time in our training habits, stretching still raises controversy.

In fact, there is no miracle recipe for preparing your body for physical exertion. The important thing is to reproduce movement specific to your sport, gradually increasing the intensity. So depending on the demands of the sport, the warm-up will be different from one person to another. For a gymnast, it will be all the more relevant to work on his flexibility before a routine on the ground, while a runner will have more benefits from running related movement patterns to prepare their bodies for action!
