What’s This Research About?

What happens if we add static stretching between sets of flywheel resistance training? How will it impact lower limb flexibility, isometric strength, and muscle hypertrophy? 

Research on inter-set static stretching is scarce and this is the first paper to examine its effect on muscle strength (isometric, concentric, and eccentric contractions) and muscle hypertrophy.

The authors hypothesized that interset SS could improve muscle strength gains due to the increased time under tension (tensile load) and increased neuromechanical and metabolic stimulus.
