5.0 out of 5 stars Best for sports Specific Stretching, 13 April 2007
This review is from: The Anatomy of Stretching (Paperback)
I have read several other books on stretching and whilst there are ones that are probably better for sports scientists this is the best I have read for athletes or anyone who wants to improve their general fitness by adding a flexibility routine.

The theory of stretching is covered clearly but briskly, hence why sports scientists may want to look elsewhere. However the bonus of this book is the clear depictions of every suggested stretch showing how to execute the stretch, the anatomy involved, which sports and injuries the stretch is beneficial for and any related stretches.

This has made it really easy to put together some routines I can complete in about 30-40 minutes whilst watching TV. The illustrations are really clear meaning you can check your form whilst performing the stretch.

For those interested in flexibility more as a means of relaxing and relieving stress in addition to fitness conditioning I would recommend The Supple Body: The New Way to Fitness, Strength and Flexibility by Sara Black instead as you may find this a bit stark. Athletes may also want to consult Black's book to complement this one with some refresher routines.
