Summary A guide for increasing flexibility, improving range of motion, toning muscles, and relieving pain and discomfort. Stretches for the shoulders, chest, arms, torso, back, hips, and legs are shown in detail. Over 550 full-color photos and illustrations go inside more than 130 exercises to show how muscles interact with surrounding joints and skeletal structures, and how variations, progressions, and sequencing can affect muscle recruitment, the underlying structures, and ultimately the results. Includes 13 programs for increasing muscle tone, releasing tension and stress, and optimizing training and performance in 13 sports, including running, cycling, basketball, soccer, golf, and track and field.--From publisher description
