2.0 out of 5 stars Hard Work, 31 Oct. 2005
By A Customer
This review is from: Stretching Scientifically: A Guide to Flexibility Training (Paperback)
Was initially delighted to have been given this book to complement my gym sessions. Knowing it would be technical, I was happily ready for a 'heavy' read. Sadly, you need to be an athlete already familiar with the terminology who has been getting it wrong/wants to get it 'more right' to really profit from this publication. For a committed, articulate and determined non-athlete who realises stretching is necessary, it may well find you wishing you had not ventured into becoming better informed. The different stretching categories are skimmed over and, shared terminology and lack of corresponding illustrations/examples compound the problem. You are left feeling that you had better decide which professional sport you are going to take up before you proceed. I persevered and was enthused to read about the benefits of a morning stretch - but lack of examples and routine left me feeling frustrated and desperately trying to imagine what this might entail - you then find yourself flicking around the book to find examples and all sequence and progression goes out the window. I have no doubt this is a brilliant publication for those in the 'know' - for those who want the 'know', it's a challenge to get the know-ledge.
