Whats the real answer? when is the proper time to strectch in order to gain optimal muscle build??
I don't stretch at all, but I can't scratch my back without a large back scratcher.
To be honest I beleive stretching does not help build muscle, it will help with flexability and lessen possible injuries. But then again those are just my 2 cents, take them for what they are.
