Summary "When Facilitated Stretching was published in 1993, it was the first book to translate the complexities of PNF (proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation) stretching into an easy, step-by-step method for athletes, coaches, and sports medicine professionals. Now fully updated and expanded, Facilitated Stretching is an even better resource that makes PNF stretching accessible to everyone. The book shows you how to perform 66 facilitated stretches covering all the major muscles and muscle groups."--BOOK JACKET
