This is the book that people tell their friends about, that trainers recommend for virtually every sport and activity, and that medical professionals recommend to people just starting to get back in shape. Stretching first appeared in 1980 as a new generation of Americans became committed to running, cycling, aerobic training, and workouts in the gym - which all seem commonplace now. It features: more than 20 new stretching routines, including those for sports enthusiasts; travelers, children, gardeners, and people in wheelchairs; an abbreviated version of each routine for people in a hurry; new information on the stretching vs. warming up controversy; and new and improved drawings.

This book is THE book. Now matter how good of shape you are in or what age you are, you should be stretching. Even if you have mandatory stretching after practice or games, you should have your own individualized plan. HIIT or before event stretching isn't covered here. I'd say this is more lifestyle with many sport-specific stretching sections. 15-20 minutes, 3 times a week will aid you over your lifetime. Never too late to start, never too early to begin. Your life will benefit from stretching and this book will give you an enormous amount of stretches to work with.
