What’s the current position about static stretching after workouts?It’s pretty common that they are recommended to do, but do they really have any effect? If I do my 10 to 20min of mobilitywod religiously everyday, should I still do static stretching exercises after my workouts?Thanks!

Do you feel the need to do it following mobility work?
Do you see a difference when you do or do not complete it?

Oh sorry, I meant after physical workouts, not mobility ones.I started doing some bodyweight training to get fitter, and every forum I’ve been checking was emphasizing the importance of doing static stretching after working out (same with training with weights actually).So I was wondering if it really was that important to do so considering I already do “maintenance” with my daily mwods.Thanks Kaitlin

If you are following along with the daily MWOD and doing a dedicated strength training practice with bodyweight I don’t feel there is any need to add in extra static stretching after your workout unless there is something that specifically feels tight after a particular session.TravisMWOD Staff

I’m really confused… If mwod is body part specific and we’re really only supposed to hit one or two parts a day, what is the postworkout recovery concept we should use?

Finish your training and cool down.

Is something tight?
Post training 10-15 minutes soft tissue work.
Or before bed works well for this.
If you have trouble areas check in with those.
It may be more maintenance based checking in with different areas.
Address what you find.
