    With this, I won't be doing anything by feel.
    gotcha. yeah, i tried that crap one time too for about 6 months. total waste of time, got weaker, smaller, and more frustrated.

    Yeah, I found that I just started doing my favorite exercises all the time, and they started stalling. Not quite conducive to maximal development.

    Yeah didn't work for me either.

    Bobo- Those PNF stretches do work pretty well. We did them in the military and also with football and they were much more effective. I have always hated static stretches as I tend to tighten back up pretty easily. I am not super flexible by any means.

    They are definetly more performance oriented.

    I'm very flexible but stretching always burnt me out more than the actual workout. Guess that would mean I need to work on some endurance

    Yeah the stretches are tough but a lot of studies point to them as a place for hypertrophy. The stretching of the muscle fascia forces the muscle to add sarcomers to the end of the muscle, makig it longer. This is what I have read, seems interesting enough.

    Actually in some studies is decreases protein synthesis


    There is that evil "study" work again

    I think the conclusion that was shorter more frequent stretches could help performance but long more infrequent stretches could actually increase recovery time. I will try to find it but its been a while.
