Following a couple of stellar reviews, I decided to end a period of indecisiveness, got myself You Are Your Own Gym, read through the explainy part and started the Basic Program.
I wonder why YAYOG never once speaks about stretching after the workouts.
Is it so obvious that you should do them that omission is not an issue? That sounds wrong, given how the book seems to be written with absolute beginners in mind (some basic points are made over and over again).
Or is it that you don't need to stretch? Today I did back lunges which certainly strain and stretch the same muscles alternatingly, but other exercises don't seem to have this property.
While I am new to the whole fitness workout thing, I used to play team handball competitively so I have some concept (however inaccurate they may be) about of how to approach doing sports. We always stretched, and after these workouts I sure feel like I should stretch.
So, was is the general doctrine/consensus on stretching after bodyweight workouts?
