It features new stretching routines for a variety of popular activities including running, golf, swimming, cycling and racket sports, as well as added strength work using stability balls, cables and elastic resistance bands. Readers will learn how to stretch each major muscle in the body to improve flexibility and co-ordination, increase strength, reduce overuse injuries and enhance performance. Over 300 photographs show the progression of stretches, while the new 60-minute DVD demonstrates the stretches and strengthening exercises in even more detail.
