Did our ancesters 20.000 years ago stretched before running for their lifes trying to escape from a tiger? Or maybe did some developmentals stretches after killing a mammoth? Maybe the needs of stretching varies from individual to individual!

Very interesting. Although when stretching is mentioned is it static stretching she is more talking about? Sounds like the way to go for sports performance is movement preparation, and use stretching and strenghtening combos for performance critical muscle imbalances.
