I would strongly advise that you do them. You can do without them but it will absolutely catch up to you at some point. Foam rolling, stretching and mob. work in general can make a truly profound difference in injury prevention and recovery. I would also suggest some more "hardcore" tools for myofascial release than the traditional foam roller. I use PVC pipes of different diameters to really soften the knots.

So far, since starting this thread, I've been totally injury-free (as in, not even a minor "tweak" to speak of).

Form has probably improved, particularly for squats. If I'd had any issues, I might've thought about getting around to stretching and so on. Ah well.

But anyway, thanks again for all the info and advice here, from all. Cheers.

I need to look into these things too,

It takes a 140kg barbell to get me below parallel on squats. And its not pretty I have to dive boom it to get there .

Oh my bad, I didn't realize this was an old thread. And I sincerely hope that you will remain that way. But in case you don't, just remember there are ways to make it all better again

Haha, no worries. And I do appreciate any insight on this. It's very much possible I'll need to draw on some of it, in future. So thanks again, mate.

Yeah, it got "bumped" by an... odd kinda post. I'll leave it at that, though time will tell.

I absolutely think that they should. Adding in foam rolling and dynamic stretching before my workouts has been amazing towards preparedness, energy, and injuries have almost become nonexistent. Static stretching afterwards, except for certain lifts I'll go ahead and stretch out what's need. For example for squat I'll stretch hip flexors and hamstrings.

Taking something from The Cube by Brandon Lily a good pre-workout routine is:
mash (rolling)
stretch (rotators, it bands, hip flexors, etc.)
warm up (a movement akin to what your main lift will be)

Doing these things have done wonders for me personally.

I don't really see the point in doing cardio as a warm-up as it seems you'll be wasting energy. What benefit would cardio before lifting have that one couldn't already achieve from doing dynamic stretching and lighter warm-up sets? Also not 100% sold yet on the benefit of cold showers/baths.

And all the other prehab things I see around.

One of the reasons I ask is that I've managed to tweak (hopefully not injure) what is probably a hip flexor, and I don't do any of those things. I've been squatting since I began this journey, and have done more weight than the set that this happened in, I warmup up (with lighter squat sets) like I always do, was trying to be aware of form (as always)... so it was a bit strange that is suddenly happened, last week.

But could it still be a lack of prehab work, and yeah, while I'm asking, the main question is, should every lifter (or particular lifters?) do any of those things? Is it just a good idea in general?
I never thought about it this way also I never did foam rolling just because I didn't thought that it was important. What I do is warm-up and do squats without any weights and start weight training. I will have to start thinking about different things different way because I too might be injuring myself in some way or the other. Thanks for opening my eyes.
