Stretching Before Training

Stretching the muscle before a training them decreases strength and power.

A second factor is that tendons and ligaments are more pliable after a workout.

For those reason, it is much better to stretch at the end of your training rather than before.

Fascia Stretch

Stretching between sets as a means of increasing muscle mass appears increase muscle size.

However to reiterate, doing so will decrease your strength and power.

So, you trading one for another.
