A great video lecture (or available as audio via iTunes) entitled "Stretching: The Truth", from Dr. Doug Richards. Dr. Richards is a professor with the department of Physical Education at the University of Toronto, and the Medical Director of the Macintosh Sports Med Clinic at UofT. He keeps a busy schedule as a clinician, teacher and researcher. I had the good fortune to work as a TA for Dr. Richards during my grad studies at UofT, back when he was 'only' an MD. Since then, he's completed his PhD, under the supervision of Dr. Stuart McGill at the University of Waterloo. Dr. Doug is a great teacher, and a fantastic lecturer - he stays current with emerging research (some of which he's doing himself), and he's very good at distilling the evidence into practical terms. Good info for coaches and athletes from an expert in the field.
