INTRODUCTION The benefits of preexercise muscle stretching have been recently questioned after reports of significant poststretch reductions in force and power production. However, methodological issues and equivocal findings have prevented a clear consensus being reached. As no detailed systematic review exists, the literature describing responses to acute static muscle stretch was comprehensively examined. METHODS MEDLINE, ScienceDirect, SPORTDiscus, and Zetoc were searched with recursive… Expand
Immediate effect of exercise on achilles tendon properties: systematic review.
TLDR
A systematic review and critical evaluation of the literature found that the mechanical and morphological properties of the AT in vivo are affected by acute exercise in a mode- and dose-dependent manner. Expand
Non-local acute stretching effects on strength performance in healthy young adults.
TLDR
The limited literature examining non-local effects of prolonged SS revealed that both the stretched and contralateral, non-stretched, limbs of young adults demonstrate small magnitude force deficits, which highlight the possible global (non-local) effects of protracted SS. Expand
Effects of Stretching on Performances Involving Stretch-Shortening Cycles
TLDR
Different types of stretching have differential acute effects on SSC performances, and for athletes that require great range of motion (ROM) and speed in their sport, long-term stretching successfully enhances flexibility without negatively affecting performance. Expand
Influence of chronic stretching on muscle performance: Systematic review.
TLDR
It is identified that 14 studies found positive effects of chronic stretching on MP, and FT might have an influence on dynamic MP, however, more studies are necessary to confirm whether FT can positively affect MP. Expand
Acute Effects of Stretching on Flexibility and Performance: A Narrative Review
TLDR
The literature demonstrates that prolonged acute SS and PNF stretching can elicit the greatest changes in flexibility, but without additional dynamic activities (i.e. full warm up) can induce neuromuscular force and power output impairments, while increasing ROM and some sports specific performance. Expand
Effect of acute antagonist static stretching on upper-body agonist power
There are many studies showing acute static stretching to be detrimental to power generation. However, the majority have focused upon the impact of stretching the agonist musculature. To date, fewExpand
Acute Effects of Static Stretching on Muscle Strength and Power: An Attempt to Clarify Previous Caveats
TLDR
Previous understanding of harmful StS effects on subsequent strength and power activities has to be updated and short-duration StS should be included as an important warm-up component before the uptake of recreational sports activities due to its potential positive effect on flexibility and musculotendinous injury prevention. Expand
Acute effects of stretching on maximal muscle strength and functional performance: A systematic review of Japanese-language randomised controlled trials.
TLDR
This review of Japanese-language RCTs provided no additional information to strengthen or challenge the current English-language evidence base on acute effects of stretching on maximal strength and performance. Expand
ACUTE EFFECTS OF DYNAMIC STRETCHING ON VERTICAL JUMP: A SYSTEMATIC REVIEW AND META-ANALYSIS
TLDR
It seems that 1 to 5 dynamic stretching exercises cause a better countermovement jump, however, more studies on this theme are needed with the objective of corroborate this affirmation. Expand
Acute effects of muscle stretching on physical performance, range of motion, and injury incidence in healthy active individuals: a systematic review.
TLDR
Considering the small-to-moderate changes immediately after stretching and the study limitations, stretching within a warm-up that includes additional poststretching dynamic activity is recommended for reducing muscle injuries and increasing joint ROM with inconsequential effects on subsequent athletic performance.

Flexibility is not Related to Stretch-Induced Deficits in Force or Power.
TLDR
It is probable that because the stretches were held to the point of discomfort with all testing, the relative stress on the muscle was similar resulting in similar impairments irrespective of the ROM or tolerance to stretching of the muscle. Expand
Strength Inhibition Following An Acute Stretch Is Not Limited To Novice Stretchers
Flexibility (joint range of motion) is promoted as an important component of physical fitness (Pollock et al., 1998). It is widely conjectured that increasing flexibility will promote betterExpand
Acute Effects of Static and Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation Stretching on Muscle Strength and Power Output.
TLDR
Both static and proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation stretching caused similar deficits in strength, power output, and muscle activation at both slow and fast velocities, which suggests the need for practitioners to consider a risk-to-benefit ratio when incorporating static or proprioception neuromUScularfacilitation stretching. Expand
The Duration of the Inhibitory Effects with Static Stretching on Quadriceps Peak Torque Production
TLDR
It is suggested that torque decrements are related to changes of muscle neuromechanical properties and recommended that static stretching exercises of a muscle group for more than 30 seconds of duration be avoided before performances requiring maximal strength. Expand
Acute effects of static stretching on muscle strength
Acute effects of static stretching on muscle strength Study aim: To assess the effects of static passive maximal stretching on muscle performance in order to clarify the existing controversies.Expand
Duration of stretch does not influence the degree of force loss following static stretching.

TLDR
SS incorporating stretch durations typical of those employed pre-exercise were sufficient to impair muscle performance and the duration of stretch did not influence the degree of force loss. Expand
ACUTE EFFECTS OF STATIC STRETCHING ON PEAK TORQUE IN WOMEN
TLDR
Overall, these findings indicated that static stretching impairs maximal force production, and strength and conditioning professionals should consider this before incorporating static stretching in preperformance activities. Expand
Does Stretching Improve Performance?: A Systematic and Critical Review of the Literature
  • I. Shrier
  • Medicine
  • Clinical journal of sport medicine : official journal of the Canadian Academy of Sport Medicine
  • 2004
TLDR
An acute bout of stretching does not improve force or jump height, and the results for running speed are contradictory, although there is no evidence that it improves running economy. Expand
Varying Amounts of Acute Static Stretching and Its Effect on Vertical Jump Performance
TLDR
6 sets of stretches, or 90 seconds per muscle group, should not be performed before power activities such as jumping where optimal performance is desired, and by systematically increasing the amount of stretching, possible differences in jump height may be discovered. Expand
The impact of stretching on sports injury risk: a systematic review of the literature.
TLDR
There is not sufficient evidence to endorse or discontinue routine stretching before or after exercise to prevent injury among competitive or recreational athletes and further research is urgently needed. Expand
