    Yeah that is it!

    It is surprising how much light weight stretched out for 20 seconds hurts.

    I swear it helped me bulk up. I am very small framed. But, I put on a lot of size the few yrs I worked in that workout.

    i don't stretch before i start my lifting routine, i like to hit the weights cold

    but once i have a pump going i stretch in between sets, feels great and i think it helps bring blood to deeper parts of the muscle

    that's exactly what i'm talking about. stretching before is not a good idea anyways since your muscles aren't warmed up.

    have you always done this?

    i think not doing it has been a huge detriment to my routine. I imagine given my frame, starting point from lifting and genetics in general that i probably have tight fascia surrounding my muscles thus limiting growth. pumped to try it!!

    i have heard this before, people saying they prefer not to stretch before lifting. how would this be of benefit?
    im too scared to not stretch before, that i'll tear a pec clean off or something lol
