Correction on "Balancing your Exercise to Maximize Output" from April 4th

A reader brought something to my attention that I had posted on March 4th (Thank you reader!). Although I had stated that you should stretch only after exercise, this is not true for all cases. If you play competitive sports, you should stretch both before and after playing these sports to maximize your game efficiency. However, if you stretch before playing sports, please make sure you warm up before you stretch. Do not stretch without any activity at all to your muscles as this can cause injury! Follow the sequence:

Warm up -- Stretch -- Play -- Cool down -- Stretch
