There's so much contradiction in the strength/fitness community.
E.g
Do your static stretching prior to your dynamic warmup.  Do static stretching cold, and hold the stretch for 2+ minutes.  Focus on the areas you are tight, not the areas you are already good at, or you may end up worse off.
I always heard that it was bad to do static stretching because it makes your muscles weaker. I do static stretching but if I'm stretching quads or hamstrings I'll only hold the stretch for about 10 seconds on each leg but do it 3x. 2 minutes seems overkill.

Anyway the points I found interesting were:
That “can barely walk” feeling you get after a high volume squat day isn’t your muscles torn to shreds, but rather, the dis-coordination of the nervous system.  The CNS will become very uncoordinated following acute bouts of acidic shock brought from lacate.

Repeated long sprints are important for athletic development in terms of musculo-tendon stiffness.

Squats make an athlete fast…. for about 15-20 meters.  When an athlete is in top-end speed posture, squats have a limited transfer of strength qualities.

Don’t be nice.  Being nice is putting up with being mistreated to keep the peace.  The world would be a better place if people would speak their mind, perhaps the #1 reason most corporate meetings are so unproductive.  A delicate balance exists between this and #91.

Yeah most textbooks or articles I've read say the exact opposite: do static stretching after dynamic warmup, and never stretch cold.
