I have over twenty years of experience in fitness, and my opinion is that you should only stretch muscles that are too tight, shortened from too much flexion, or otherwise imbalanced. You should get a functional movement assessment from a fitness professional to determine which muscles are short and tight.  Those muscles are the ones you should stretch before and after exercise.  You can stretch them every day, and once a day is enough.
