Whether you workout at home or you are a fitness instructor, this book will guide you through everything you need to know (and do) to gain and/or increase your flexibility. Very easy to follow, very complete. I use it all the time!

I enjoy stretching a lot, and have a couple of stretching books, but this one is really helpful because it has routines! Each one is laid out clearly and is easy to follow. The pictures are are real photos, not drawn ones, and it is so well put together. This is the best stretching book I have seen so far!
