So I came across a video by a couple of physical therapists that explained how stretching is a waste of time unless it addresses a specific issue. These guys were thorough, had a bullet point reference on the matter and explained each point clearly.

    I think it’s safe to say that most people have muscle imbalances. An imbalance is an overactive muscle on one side of a joint and a weak, underactive muscle on the opposite side.
