I have always used the word estirar to mean to stretch. It is used when you are exercising and stretch your muscles. It is also used when you are stretching high to grab something off a shelf.

But a new use of the word came up last night. We were walking into a restaurant and saw the word estire on the door instead of empuje (push). I guess the idea is that you are stretching out in front of you to push the door away.
