Correct. I am here ADDING TO an ongoing posting of relevent articles as they become available over the years. Microtears of cold muscles being stretched is akready documentrd. This article does mention the study author's belief based on prior studies which have also been widely published that endurance is also affected.
Ah, interesting. I wasn't aware of studies showing microtears.

That said, I would like to see a change in practice from stretching before and maybe some light warmups, to warmups at the beginning and cool down stretching at the end.

I keep telling myself I could do that on my own, but I don't listen to myself very often.
