4.0 out of 5 stars only one con, 17 Feb 2014

This review is from: Stretching for Running: Chris Norris's Three-phase Programme (Paperback)
The con first. At the start of the book it gives you a flexibility test. This has been condensed to fit the table and to keep the book small i feel. It doesn't describe what muscle you are testing which is frustrating. Yes with some of them it's probably obvious, but with others i'd like a definite 'if you're not a flexible on this stretch you should work on stretching 'insert muscle name''

The book is compact and easy to read. It has colour pictures and descriptions for each stretch. As the description says it is split into three phases, and I'd say it depends on your flexibility where you start in that programme.

As others have said, it is the usual stretches and if you're a regular runner/exerciser you probably do a lot of them already. For me this book was more about getting it all in one easy to reach place. With instructions of how long to hold, variations if i need and suggestions on how to improve.

Not a bad book, probably not the best stretching book. But very little jargon and it does what I need.
