    That's correct based on my research for current calve issues. Static stretching according to some temporarily weakens the muscle/compromises it, so before exercise not a good idea. Dynamic stretching however is good. Static stretching best done after a session/run etc.
    Some disrepute this, but makes sense to me.

    would agree but if you look at the POF system of training from Steve Holeman (positions of flexion training) there are three positions of muscle activity.
    Midrange position
    stretch position
    contracted position


    some exercise have one or more of these positions. so stretching is really a part of weight training exercises.
