So? Assuming that is true, why is that a problem?

I think you and I are in 100% agreement. Do it if you find it helps. I didn't know about the cold muscle problem before you posted it. Almost everyone I see stretching in a gym seems to violate...

Stretching literally has absolutely nothing to do with eliminating lactate in the muscles. That's entirely determined by metabolism, blood circulation, and your liver. In a normal person, it takes...

I'm posting as someone who doesn't think the OP has anything to do with the sort of stretching a gymnast might do.

It might be interesting to find out if there were any cyclists on the jury. Even if only one or two, they might have brought that perspective into deliberations.
