    Hi

    Ive been given contradictory advice on static vs dynamic stretching by two physios. one saying static stretching is a no no and increases the risk of injury and the other saying that it is crap and is only applicable to certain types of athletes (bb not being one of them). [MENTION=11]scump[/MENTION] or [MENTION=6124]Venkman[/MENTION] could you throw in your 2c please?

    static stretching only post an exercise, it is possible to injure yourself performing a static stretch while the muscles/joints are cold and i do remember reading once about static stretching prior to an exercise having a negative impact of performance (thus increasing risk of injury).

    Dynamic stretching before an exercise.

    Bursitis in the piriformis /Glute muscle area on right side.

    Would you suggest to stop Sumo Deadlift, until it heals?

    Or just keep going at low weight high reps?

    Been going on for at least 12 weeks now, annoying as FK.

    All started when a Chiro went to far.

    Can you post a pic of where exactly the pain is? Not sure which area you're talking about.

    Generally bursitis needs rest, but you're going to have to be the judge. If you're still getting pain doing high reps then stop. If you can't find a substitute exercise and still really want to do them then work up until the pain starts then back off and work in that range while it heals.

    I'm hitting it was a massager daily, also started to take Pain Away Krill Oil + turmeric, seems to be calming it down.

    Also agree with you on the pressure, like I think for example doing Db Shoulder Press instead of BB Overhead maybe a better option for the relieving the pressure of the Glute/issue area.

    Would you agree we place tight schedules on so many ways to do the training yet, when issues take place we freak out without considering the options?

    I was looking just cutting back the load to around 120kg as the 8 rep max for now til this dies down, best was 140-160kg.... Just going to use Sumo as a warm up exercise only, not go for goals on it just high reps til this dies down. But in saying that even 80X15, isn't that still like doing 150X4? When you compare the volume?

    Was looking at say 80X15, 90X12, 100X12, 110X10, 120X8. But then concentrating on the other leg exercises I do, like Hack Squats, for which I ain't done in at least a year, I actually am getting that right for a change no pain associated with it.

    Sorry if this sounds all around the place, just trying to get some answers if I 'm achieving the same goal but changing things.

    Going ok so far and now includes hack squats twice a week. Unsure if it's full bursitis or stabilizer issue + little bursitis.

    The purpose of stretching is to warm up the muscles. Thus, dynamic stretching is the way to go. There are studies that showed performing a static stretching before an exercise can actually result to weakened performance as it tires the muscles.
