See inside every stretch as you increase flexibility & improve muscular strengh
Expanded, enhanced, and updated, the Stretching Anatomy returns to show you how to increase range of motion, supplement training, enhance recovery, and maximize efficiency of movement. You’ll also gain a detailed understanding of how each stretch affects your body.
Stretching Anatomy, Second Edition, is like having an X-ray of each stretch, only better. Not only do you see full-color illustrations of the muscles in action, but you also see how a change in position can alter the muscle emphasis and difficulty and how variations can improve safety and effectiveness. A new Stretch Focus section details the procedure and benefits of every exercise as well as safety considerations and variations according to skill level.
“Stretching Anatomy offers great illustrations and practical advice from two well-known scholars in stretching.”

The only problem is the book falls apart easily. The nearly all of the pages separated, so I had put the pages in a binder.
