    No kidding. I must say I'm rather pleased with that fact though. That being said, I'd be happy to revive the discussion here, update it further or whatever. Or do something similar for other physical training topics. I may have been gone a while, but in that time I've only been getting better.

    Does stretching too much stunt your growth? How much would be overstretching? (I'm assuming it does because most gymnasts are TINY)

    No, it does not stunt your growth.

    Depends on the person and what their training goals are. A good rule of thumb: if it hurts during or causes more pain to the area after stretching, you've overstretched. If your hyper-flexibility reduces the stability of the joint, your overstretching.

    Nope.

    This is one of the best videos on stretching i've seen to date, if only for how he uses mechanical engineering jargon.

    Many (most?) PTs, MTs, Chiros, coaches etc are not doing this and i think it really hinders meaningful discussion.

    Discussing properties of muscles and movement in those terms is much more clear than what is commonplace now.

    It's a little long and most of it is terminology discussion, but it's really worthwhile, methinks.

    It's always good to hear someone talking rationally about stretching.

    For those who care to read research: http://ptjournal.apta.org/content/90/3/438.long

    I've seen the above video before and I think it's very good as far as stretching goes. I would question why the presenter assumes that tissue creep happens at all in such short time frames when it's already been demonstrated that stretching's greatist influence is on tolerance to stretch unless you are talking about low-load long duration stretching.

    It would seem like this is splitting hairs, but when people talk about increasing actual extensibility of a tissue or "correcting muscle imbalances" this sort of thing will inform your actions.

    Agreed.
    He also doesn't bother much with velocity as it pertains to ROM and the muscle as a damper.
