How many of you stretch before or between sets? i have read conflicting opinions on this.. that stretching during sets is not good and counter productive. I can't believe this.

I stretch all the time between sets - especially on the bigger bodypart groups like back, legs, and chest. Even triceps are stretched out during workouts and it helps keep the muscles supple and warm. Don't see any disadvantages to stretching at all.

I must admit ...I still half a$$ stretching before. I will stretch during workout and breath to get oxygen but I suck at pre stretching as well as post stretch (no matter if it's weight lifting or boxing/kickboxing...etc LOL)

today I pulled my right peck doing only 275 for a few reps. Not heavy at all..just poor warm ups rushing through sets like a dumbass.
