Stretching inhibits or shuts off the muscles therefore making your more prone to injury yourself according to research within the last few years.  Short and sweet take home from Dr. Cohen:  just start your activity slowly and at a lower intensity. For example, you don’t need to hit the advanced slopes at the first run of the day.

It isn’t that stretching is bad, I like organized functional stretching like yoga but even with that start you slowly.
