Warming up / pre-workout stretching is standard procedure and a “must” for the majority. It’s easy to see why stretching before working out rather than going in “cold” is a good thing however the benefits to post-workout stretching often gets overlooked.
Generally speaking the less healthy and fit you are the longer it will take your body to recover, particularly after exercise. While a sweeping statement such as this does not necessarily fit everyone's specific recovery rates it tends to be the general way of things. With this in mind it makes sense for people to improve their fitness levels in order to recover quicker (and better). Some believe that a break from working out is best for optimal recovery which is not always correct. I find that recovery is often an after-thought for many in training as it gets in the way of whatever training timetable they have in place and goals they have in mind.
