The Stretching Bible: The Ultimate Guide to Improving Fitness and Flexibility

Autor Lexie Williamson
en Limba Engleză Paperback – 23 feb 2017

The Stretching Bible will help anyone gain mobility, improve sporting performance, and prevent common muscular injuries. A highly practical title, it clearly explains the science, benefits and 'dos and don'ts' of stretching followed by a range of stretches categorized by body part (quads, calves), activity (working at the office, rising in the morning), sport (rowing, tennis) or injury (hamstring strain, tennis elbow).

This book is illustrated with simple diagrams at the beginning of each 'body part' chapter to pinpoint the location of the muscles to be stretched, and contains real-life case studies from athletes in the sport-specific section to explain how stretching has enhanced their performance or reduced injury and expert opinions on stretching from physiotherapists, doctors and coaches.
