The visually stunning illustrations of 79 stretches cover all major joint areas of the body from the feet to the neck. Each stretch includes step-by-step instructions on how to perform the stretch, the names of the muscles stretched, and a Stretch Notes section detailing the procedures and benefits of every exercise as well as safety considerations and variations for increasing or decreasing difficulty.  


 


You’ll find suggested stretching programs for daily mobility and flexibility, including stretches for people who sit or stand for extended periods, as well as a program proven to help lower blood glucose. Sport-specific stretching routines for 23 different sports are included for athletes and their trainers who want to improve flexibility, maximize efficiency of movement, and enhance recovery from training and competing in their chosen sport.
