“God, I”ve been stretching since I was a little kid, so it is not something that remember being taught, it has always just been something that I”ve done. So since I was 5 or 6 I was showed to do the stretch I”m doing, and I still do it.”

13. SOUNDBITE (English) Dr. Anders Cohen, Chief of Neurological and Spinal surgery, The Brooklyn Hospital Center:
“There”s concern of overstretching or spending too much time on your limberness, which will take away from actually some of the muscle strength you”re developing, and so that”s part of why this new form of stretching (dynamic stretching) is growing in popularity because it”s a combination of warming the body up as well as stretching in the positions and in the movements that the body will participate in in the sports that follows the warm up with the stretching.”

19. SOUNDBITE (English) Monica Vazquez, Master trainer, New York Sports Club:
“With static stretching you are holding the muscle in an elongated state for set a period of time, generally about 20 seconds or so. With dynamic stretching you are moving it in and out of the range of motion, so it is actually moving from that stretched state and back.”

23. SOUNDBITE (English) Larry Spann, Exercise enthusiast:
“It”s definitely surprising to me because even the trainers that I work with here, they always suggest that you should run to loose up the muscles and then go stretching before you actually start lifting weights and that kind of thing.”

26. SOUNDBITE (English) Tom Mills, Former dancer:
“You can see around the gym the people that start with stretching and it”s dangerous. You can easily rip something because you”re trying to make the muscle do something it”s not quite ready for yet. That”s why you don”t come into the gym and lift 250 pounds first thing, because you”re going to hurt yourself, your body isn”t ready to take the weight yet, you”ve got to gradually work into it.”
