50 Exercises to avoid injury, relieve aches, and improve performance
Dr. Ken Ashwell, Consultant - All books by this author

At one time, stretching was viewed as a practice to be done before a workout, a run, or other physical activity. Today, our understanding of stretching has expanded. The practice not only improves general fitness and flexibility, it also increases circulation, calms the mind, fends off injuries and illness, and can even aid in getting a better nightís sleep. In The Anatomy of Stretching, highly detailed anatomical illustrations demonstrate 50 common stretches and show exactly what happens in the body during each one. Health and fitness trainers, students of sports science, and those hoping to start or improve their own fitness regimen will find:
  • An introduction to the principles of stretching, including safety tips and proper techniques
  • 50 fully-illustrated, strength-building and toning stretches for each part of the body
  • Variations for beginners and more advanced students for each stretch
  • A workbook section with illustrations of the muscular and skeletal system and a glossary of terms
With more than 100 full-color anatomical illustrations and clear, concise instructions for each stretch, The Anatomy of Stretching is an ideal manual for expanding oneís understating of anatomy and improving the effectiveness of workouts.
