Static Stretching has been a staple of running training for several decades. But is static stretching good runners?
This is an excerpt from Dr. Jeff Messer‘s presentation “Endurance Training: Current Science and Application to Program Design” from the 08.03.13 Boulder Running Clinic. I think this is a great example of someone like Dr. Messer taking a closer look at a published paper to see if the findings of the paper actually apply to runners. Maybe they do, maybe they don’t.
All of the videos from the 08.03.13 clinic will be available later this month at BoulderRunningClinics.com.
