about this item

This book can be used by amateur and professional athletes, as well as trainers, coaches, and physical therapists. It contains both individual stretch sequences and assisted stretching sequences intended to be performed on the athlete by a coach, trainer, or physical therapist. The book begins with chapters on principles of flexibility, the anatomy and physiology of flexibility, and fundamentals of flexibility training. Later chapters cover flexibility for sport performance and for everyday mobility. An assessment allows readers to assess their own flexibility and choose routines to fit their needs. The book includes an extensive glossary, step-by-step instructions, process diagrams, summary charts, and b&w photos. This second edition reflects current research and offers additional stretches. There is new material on muscle anatomy, the role of the fascia, and the connections between the brain and the nervous system. Authors Ann Frederick and Chris Frederick are the creators of LifeStretch, Fascial Stretch Therapy, and the Stretch to Win Center. Annotation ©2017 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
