Overview

In Fitness Stretching, the authorities on fitness present a comprehensive guide to the most important — but often neglected — aspect of any fitness regimen.

Whether you're running a marathon, biking around the block, or simply getting the kinks out after a long day of sitting, stretching is a proven way to improve your sense of fitness. By lengthening muscles and lubricating joints, stretching prevents injury, promotes recovery, improves posture and balance, and refreshes the body. Plus, learning to stretch correctly can help you to maximize the benefits of your workout.

Fully illustrated and easy to use, Fitness Stretching takes you through every muscle group in the body with step-by-step instructions for more than 100 yoga- and sport-inspired stretches. Clear explanations accompany each stretch, allowing you to customize your own stretching routine.

For all levels of fitness, Fitness Stretching features an activity-by-activity breakdown to help you find the best stretch for every workout, from aerobics to windsurfing. While you'll find innovative suggestions for stretching in the pool or with poles, barres, and balls, most stretches can be done without any equipment at all. At home, at work, or at the gym, the experts at Fitness can help you make stretching a fun and easy part of your daily routine.
