Listener Questions from FB: [24:30]

Ellen C. Is a dynamic warm up all that important? Are a few minutes on the treadmill and some stretches as beneficial?

Carla B Why were we always taught to stretch before activity? Knowing more now, it seems really counterintuitive. Also, what does stretching after activity do for you( besides it being a "proper cool down ")? 

Kimberly K Is it bad to stretch before a workout? I don't have time after my crossfit class so I stretch a little before to get some stretching in.
