  • Really nicely illustrated book. I like that it points out that any particular stretch is neither good nor bad in itself, it is more down to how fit and healthy you are, the injuries you have and the way the stretch is performed.It's spurred me to include stretching before and after a workout rather than just after.


  • I love love love to stretch and this book really gives you a full view of stretch exercises with a visual aspect of your muscles. Stretch for the heck of it. It'll do you good. I highly recommend you check this book out and do the exercises.


  • Holy moley this book rocks my world. It shows exactly how to stretch those crazy random muscles that you want to stretch 'cuz they're bothering you 'cuz you did something weird that hurted them.


  • Must-have book for any athlete or weekend warrior that doesn't have money lying around for weekly therapeutic massage appointments or physical therapy.

Most of the stretch exercises covered in the book don't require any equipment whatsoever, and can be easily done alone at home or in the office. Compared with many other types of exercises, f [...]


  • Brilliant stretching infprmationI couldn't teach my stretch and tone classes without it. A must have! I show my clients all the sports moves and hold each stretch for 20 minimum. I'm 84, my pupils are over 70!


  • this is a great little book on stretching. it's set out in sections pertaining to areas of the body in order to find groups of useful stretches easily. each stretch is well illustrated and described making it easy to perform. it's really helping me stretch out after TKD and kickboxing.


  • The stretches in this book are great. They are presented in a way that is easy to follow, and the photos showing the muscles and how they stretch during each exercise are really helpful. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is having muscle and/or joint pain.


  • great book to figure out stretching for all parts of body. Includes color pics of each exercise and the muscles it works and references other stretches that coordinate with them
