Incorporate the best, most advanced techniques into your stretching program! Full-Body Flexibility presents a unique system that blends the best stretching methods from yoga, Pilates, martial arts, and sports training into stretching sequences that
-challenge muscles with multiple techniques to attain maximum flexibility,

-strengthen muscles so that they can support the body throughout specific moves in the entire range of motion, and

-balance muscles equally in opposing muscle groups and on both sides of the body. The stretch sequences are organized by body region and by type of movement so that you can quickly find a flexibility workout ranging from 10 to 40 minutes. The workouts help you to target tight muscle groups and relieve tension around problem joints, increase effectiveness of specific movements, and warm up and cool down for your specific activity.

Full-Body Flexibility also includes performance and recovery stretch sequences for the most popular sports, including sports that involve throwing and swinging, jumping and power, and running and endurance. Stretches are accompanied by photos and detailed instruction to help you execute each technique correctly.

Full-Body Flexibility offers the most advanced, effective stretching system available, head to toe.

If you have done any sort of exercise programs, you will probably be familiar with many of these stretches. If you know nothing of stretching or yoga, this book has each area of the body listed and the stretching exercises for each area. There is instruction for doing the stretch and a picture of each stretch. What I like best is the pictoral stretching routines for total body stretching. There are also stretching routines in preparation for specific sports. It is a good book for beginners and worth a look for intermediates. For those who do different sports, it is worth a look for the preparation for different type sports.
