This is the most useful book on stretching that I have ever come across. It is very easy to use and understand. The stretches are broken down and categorized by body parts, everyday stretching routines, and activities.
Anderson uses simple drawings to illustrate the stretches and the spiral binding makes it easy to leave the book open to the page in use.
If you are considering starting a stretching program, or are experienced and looking for a comprehensive resource on stretching you should consider this book. -Duke
The medicine ball, a popular exercise tool in the 50′s, 60′s and 70′s, is now making a comeback in the year 2001. The trend in fitness is toward core strength; strong abdominals, obliques and back muscles. The core group of muscles or “core” are often the initial source of physical movement. Therefore, having a strong core is crucial to both sport success for the athlete and functional movement for the average person. Because of it’s size, weight, and easy handling ability, the medicine ball is an excellent exercise tool for working the core.The Great Medicine Ball Handbook shows the user a range of different exercises, along with proper instruction and safety concerns. Other sections include; rotator cuff exercises, stretching, a sample routine, and muscle anatomy diagrams.
