    Is it good to stretch sore muscles?

    I worked out my chest on friday and its still pretty sore. Im trying to build size and strength and I was just wondering if stretching would mess with the recovery of the muscle. I dont want to overtrain or anything.

    Yes. Stretching a sore muscle will never lead to overtraining.

    it would most likely aid in recovery. i know that if my chest hurts and i stretch it out it feels better afterward. its suposed to increase blood flow to the area and therefore it removes waste like lactic acid and brings nutrients to the muscle. it wont hurt to stretch. you should be stretching everyday in fact. just dont do static stretches before a workout, do it after. your better off doing dynamic stretches before a workout. save static for after.

    anyways, yes i agree with timmy47, static stretching will help promote blood flow and remove lactic acid waste.

    IN SHORT: It is good.

    stretching not only helps with increased blood flow, it removes lactic acid and will prevent any possible venous pooling.

    they feel sore because they have been worked in a certain continual contraction e.g. bench press

    So if you can manage to stretch the muscle by moving it in an opposite direction, that's good, it will be stretched and will feel easier to move.

    give it a go next time and let me know how you feel.

    i played alot of sport when i was at high school Football (AFL) and would get sore groins and quads.. Alot of swimming too, so chest, shoulders, traps, back would hurt.

    Stretching is golden and not enough people do it
    Height -6'7"
