Is it better not to warm up if micro-tears are what we're after
Just a thought; if you warm up does that not make it more difficult and require more tension to make micro-tears in the tunica? I was just wondering what others thought about this. I realize injury is more likely but the elasticity is increased when you warm up so causing tears would then be more difficult, as my understanding goes. As long as you start out slowly and progress evenly for stretching, manually or otherwise, would it not be more effective and require less overall tension to start out cold to reduce the elasticity aspect? I’m not recommending this or have I tried it very much but I was interested in getting others feedback.
