Abstract

ABSTRACT: TODAY'S COACHES DO NOT USE MANY OF THE CURRENT RESEARCH RECOMMENDATIONS FOR PRE- AND POST-STRETCHING, EVEN THOUGH MANY OF THEM HAVE COMPLETED CERTIFICATION PROGRAMS DESIGNED TO HELP THEM DEVELOP EVIDENCE-BASED PRACTICES. THIS ARTICLE WILL BRIEFLY REVIEW THE CURRENT RECOMMENDATIONS FOR STRETCHING AND PRESENT DATA THAT SHOW A LACK OF COMPLIANCE WITH THESE RECOMMENDATIONS. THE PURPOSE OF THE DISCUSSION WILL BE TO IDENTIFY THE EXTENT TO WHICH CERTIFICATION MIGHT AFFECT COACHING PRACTICES.
