    Keep in mind that most (if not all) of this information is outdated at this point so utilizing these stretches isn't always the best idea.

    To answer your question though, if you're going to stretch, hit some dynamic work before your training session and then get into it.

    Also, if this question was in regards to hamstrings, most don't need to worry about stretching them at all. I expounded upon the topic in this article if you're curious: "It’s Time to Stop Stretching Your Hamstrings"

    Great thread.. Staying flexible as you age is a good idea. It helps you move better. For example, regular stretching can help keep your hips and hamstrings flexible later in life. If your posture or activities are a problem, make it a habit to stretch those muscles regularly. If you have back pain from sitting at a desk all day, stretches that reverse that posture could help.

    Did you not read the quote above you^? I wrote that article specifically to address common misconceptions such as the ones which you've brought up in your comment.
