Banyen's Description: 

Bob Anderson’s Stretching is probably the most widely used and recommended book on the topic ever published, and it’s still one of the best, some 30 years after it was written. The simple stretches detailed here do wonders for everyday fitness and for sports including golf, tennis, running, and cycling. All are illustrated with clear line drawings. Now in an updated, revised 30th Anniversary edition, Stretching teaches the right way to stretch with over 1,000 clear drawings and more than 200 stretches. It includes stretching routines for 37 sports and activities—it has every stretch you will ever need—and now includes 10 new stretching routines for office workers and computer operators. It also includes tips on office ergonomics and preventing repetitive stress injuries, and comes in a new two-colour design.

One of the most deservedly popular fitness books of all time, Stretching has a graphic index of all 150 stretches—useful for doctors, medical professionals, and body workers in prescribing stretches for patients.

As the authors, Bob and Jean Anderson, say: “You can make photocopies of different routines for easy reference. Just the one page will give you a series of stretches tailored to your individual needs. Keep in a desk drawer or put on the wall or floor when stretching. If you stretch in the right way—no bouncing, no pain—you’ll feel better. It’s that simple.”
