    It's not a must at all. If you are lifting properly you do a stretch with every lift.

    Lifting heavy, if you are doing rep's and moving at a constant cadence and going to fatigue, it should be heavy, must be heavy.

    If you curl 20 reps and it's done very easily and you don't go to fatigue, the the intensity of work is very low and clearly not heavy.

    If your using your weights sessions as your stretching sessions you are doing it wrong - I am all for getting the most out of the lift, stretching, squeezing etc - but to a limit - you need to remember your weights are there to overload the muscle, so it forces it to grow - not to increase flexibility.

    What is this "but to a limit" you speak of?

    so if you are all for "stretch and squeeze", but you think there is no value why do it at all?

    why not just as you say, overload your muscle and not concern yourself with it?
    actually I have no idea what you are stating, it seems as if more often than not two people talking in many of your posts.

    The main point to lift weight is to overload the muscle so it grows - now yes you could argue that stretching will over load the muscle - but are you really going to be holding the weight for 15,20,30 seconds in a stretching motion and if you can I highly doubt that weight is even heavy enough to overload the muscle for it to grow.

    Yea I agree that you could use weights/your weight training sessions to help with flexibility - but I highly doubt if you were doing that you would be overloading the muscle enough to grow.

    Static stretching like you are talking about, holding for 30 sec, hasn't shown to be that effective anyway, it hasn't shown to reduce injures or carry over to dynamic movements. Basically static stretching gets you better at static stretching it doesn't really help with other movements.

    If you a lifting in a full range of motion you are performing a dynamic stretch every rep. Doing its all you bro half rep benches doesn't achieve this.

    I don't really get much out of stretching, but I find firm pressure/rolling on tight muscles/tendons helps with soreness/tightness.
    Training Since December 2011
    Best comp lifts: 210/125/280 (615kg) @117.4kg (13-7-14)
    All time PB's 210/127.5/280
    MY GOALS (end of 2014): 650+ total...
