i get the benefit of being stretched by my personal trainer...she is in sports medicine...and the last 5 min of our workout...she personally stretches me and gets very good deep streches. Its well worth missing out 5 min of wt lifting. I think its important for stretch..why don't you ask your personal trainer for some good stretches...you're paying him/her for that. they are suppose to know that stuff. They had to pass a test that included that stuff. Maybe ask your PT if they could show you some good stretchees on your next workout...take 5 min out..it is very important. i personally feel that learning proper stretches are just as important as training. Just ask..your paying them...it really shouldn't be a problem. I actually do 5-10 min of yoga afer every workout and i find i get great streches.
