Stretching (20th Anniversary Revised Edition)by Bob Anderson
"It doesn't require equipment, it's not fancy or exotic, and it feels so good; learn what your cat already knows. This book is the easiest, most accessible guide to stretching I've found. Even sitting at a desk all day can put all sorts of kinks and knots in you. Especially combined with bad posture and some tension. Anderson moves through each muscle group, then offers routines tailored to all sorts of activities. Morning stretches, night stretches, sports stretches, waiting for the bus stretches even riding in airplane stretches. I've made the most use of his suggestions for stretches at my desk. The line drawings in this book are engaging and easy to follow. Whether you get the new anniversary edition or the original edition, you'll enjoy picking up an activity that is often enhanced by a few 'ooohs' and 'aaahs.'"
Synopses & Reviews
Can one of the world's most popular fitness books get even better? It can! Stretching, by Bob Anderson, has been completely revised, with all new drawings, 25 new stretching routines, and updated stretching information throughout.
Ahead of its time when first published in 1980, Stretching hit the street when a lot of ordinary people were getting interested in fitness and were starting to run, cycle, and work out. It had stretching routines for these newcomers, as well as for serious competitive athletes. It also included general stretches for everyday activities. People loved its simplicity and clarity, while trainers and doctors found it to be such a valuable resource they recommended it to patients and clients.
Stretching has remained a favorite for two decades, proving that Stretching never goes out of style.
"The best I've seen on the market." Art Ulene, M.D., The Today Show
"A bible of the stretching gospel." The Washington Post
Illustrates stretching exercises designed to increase flexibility and help prevent injury, and suggests specific stretch routines for a variety of sports.
This is the book that people tell their friends about, that trainers recommend for virtually every sport and activity, and that medical professionals recommend to people just starting to get back in shape. Stretching first appeared in 1980 as a new generation of Americans became committed to running, cycling, aerobic training, and workouts in the gym - which all seem commonplace now. It features: more than 20 new stretching routines, including those for sports enthusiasts; travelers, children, gardeners, and people in wheelchairs; an abbreviated version of each routine for people in a hurry; new information on the stretching vs. warming up controversy; and new and improved drawings.
The bestselling exercise book now includes stretches for over 60 sports and activities, including those for sports enthusiasts, travelers, children, gardeners, and people in wheelchairs. 1,000 illustrations.
Includes bibliographical references and index.
