Stretching before exercising

The conventional wisdom is that stretching elongates the muscle and helps prevent injury. Conversely, stretching before a workout will weaken the muscle by 30%, and the reduced tension may increase the risk of injury. 

Do warm up by walking before cardio or doing light weights before intense training, and do stretch after a workout.
