“The human body is infinite in its possibilities for movement, though duly constrained by the Goddess Gravity and the Caliban or Peter Pan of your unique gene map.” ~WEE SMALL STRETCH BOOK
Stop thinking stretching is a waste of time. You absolutely could not move if muscles did not ‘stretch.’ You have to stretch because you have to. All locomotion, even the tiniest movement, requires one group of muscles to lengthen, or stretch, in order for the opposing muscle or muscle group to contract and thereby move the levers of your bones to move you. Those rhythms happen naturally in the architecture of our bodies. But, if you stretch consciously, knowingly, you optimize the power inherent in that blueprint and minimize the drag on your system which creates inefficiencies and fatigue.
