Light stretching can be done after a warm up. When resistance training, allow 48 hours to pass before training similar muscle groups (i.e. do not train legs two days in a row). If you feel pain, STOP! This is your body’s way of telling you something that is not right. Muscle soreness is natural and is to be expected after a hard workout. Cool down for 5 minutes with either light cardio or calisthenics. Moderate to aggressive stretching can be done once the muscles are warm, you will find you have more flexibility. NEVER aggressively stretch a cold muscle. This creates the potential for muscle tendon/tears. As always, when new to exercise, check with your doctor prior to starting a new program.
