I'd love to know how it helps muscle contractions and alignment as well. Acute static stretching inhibits muscular contractions.

stretching warms up the muscles to give stretch ability so the surrounding tissue & ligaments don't tear under stress

every single athlete is tort to stretch before exercise if you don't believe this your a coach potato & no nothing
