Excellent Book On Stretching
on 4 March 2011
I cannot recommend this book enough if you would like to know more about stretching for exercise or rehabilitation.
This book provides details on the types of stretching and how they should be used, and the make up and actions of muscles at the beginning of the book. Then the book is broken down into to exercises for the different parts of the body. Each individual exercise has at least one, but sometimes a number of really clear diagrams showing the stretch and the muscles being used. Then their are sections on the technique that should be used for the stretch, sports that would benefit from the stretch, sports injuries where the stretch may be useful, additional information for performing the stretch correctly, and details of other stretches that would complement the stretch.
This is one of the best books I have found on stretching exercises, and I use it all the time for reference for myself and for teaching points for the sports participants I coach.
