    Jam Packed with Stretches for Every Muscle GroupI m a former couch potato who started doing Tae Bo and cardio kickboxing almost two years ago I recently added yoga to my routine for flexibility, and pilates for strength and control, but found that I neededIn particular, I wanted greater flexibility in my adductor muscles so that I could kick higher and with increased control I found that I was also having some knee problems So I checked out every book that my local library had on stret Jam Packed with Stretches for Every Muscle GroupI m a former couch potato who started doing Tae Bo and cardio kickboxing almost two years ago I recently added yoga to my routine for flexibility, and pilates for strength and control, but found that I neededIn particular, I wanted greater flexibility in my adductor muscles so that I could kick higher and with increased control I found that I was also having some knee problems So I checked out every book that my local library had on stretching and flexibility out of the dozen or so books I looked at, I liked three of them, including Sport Stretch, well enough that I purchased my own copies Sport Stretch begins with a discussion of flexibility, then launches into descriptions of 311 different stretches Most of these consist of a single illustration with a few bulleted instructions The stretches themselves are arranged into chapters based on muscle groups, including feet and ankles, lower legs, hamstrings, adductors, quadriceps, hips and gluteals, lower torso, upper back, neck, pectorals, shoulders, and arms and wrists.Additionally, the author includes an index at the beginning of the book that singles out stretches that are helpful for specific sports One to three page sections are dedicated to each of the following archery baseball, softball, and cricket basketball bowling cross country skiing cycling and triathlon dance diving figure skating football golf gymnastics hiking and backpacking ice hockey in line skating jogging lacrosse martial arts race walking rowing, kayacking, and canoeing sailing and windsurfing skiing soccer squash swimming table tennis tennis, racquetball, and handball track and field volleyball water skiing weight lifting and wrestling.As a BEGINNER, I found most of the stretches helpful There were some standard moves that I was already familiar with from my high school gym classes, as well as somechallenging exercises I learned in yoga However, a number of the stretches were completely new to me I m especially happy with the adductor section, as it s exactly what I needed to help with my roundhouse kicks Note the emphasis on beginner, though because I m such a novice, I really can t say whetheradvanced athletes will find Sports Stretch useful or not.As much as I like the book, I do have a few complaints Most of the stretches, with few exceptions, only have a single illustration Given the minimalist instructions, many of the moves could have used at least one extra picture Also, once I eased into certain stretches, I found it difficult to gracefully get OUT of them It seems to me as though the author should have included exit strategies for some of a stretches, particularly theadvanced ones Finally, a few stretches come with the following caveat This exercise may be too advanced or dangerous for even some elite athletes Now, I would think that elite or even professional athletes have trainers, and wouldn t need to rely on a book for stretching advice so I really don t see why the author included these seemingly dangerous stretches Unless he s asking for a lawsuit Otherwise, a great buy, at least for beginner to moderate athletes

    3.5 stars I always want to know what stretches to do after running to reduce the risk of injury and increase flexibility This book was perfect because it has a ton of stretches, and tells you which ones to do for which sport Also, if you re interested, the first part of the book goes into a lot of physiological detail about muscles I pretty much skipped that though.
