This is due to a whole range of studies that have demonstrated reductions in strength, power and speed immediately following static stretching.

5 healthy salads that will actually fill you up
STACK
Salads filled with dark leafy greens but without fat-laden dressings are rich in nutrients like fiber (for good digestion and lower blood cholesterol) and Vitamin A (for strong bones and good vision). But if they lack the right ingredients, salads can leave you feeling hungry again soon after you eat. To be filling, your salads must have carbohydrates and protein or healthy fats. Athletes need protein to build muscle, and the healthy fats in foods like olive oil and avocados aid satiety to slow down your appetite and keep you from overeating.
