    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.

    Maybe not enough but I do a one set at lighter weight them my training weight, though I do a full body routine.

    Some stretching with bands
    Dead hangs
    10-20 reps with bar
    Similar with some weight on occasionally
    Then reps

    Like someone else said I'm weak enough for it to not really be a bother

    Calisthenics and Yoga anyone?

    I'm all about the balance between bodybuilding and health/fitness these days tbh but make no mistake that I still go balls-out in the gym when I train.

    Do i some stretching and mobility work, then its roughly, depending on exercises..

    Warm up sets;
    x10
    x6
    x3 (this weight is same as my heaviest set, next set. Doing a few reps puts mind and body in a great position knowing whats coming)

    Working sets;
    x12 (top set)
    x12/15+ (back off set)
