Summary, etc.: It doesn't matter if you're a fitness novice or an elite athlete. You should be starting each workout exactly the same way - with a stretching regimen designed to warm up your body and help you achieve a new personal best each time. But without the expertise of a professional trainer and without an expert's understanding of muscle anatomy, it can be hard to know what exercises are best. Craig Ramsay is here to help! In Anatomy of Stretching, he brings the lessons learned in ten years as a trainer to celebrities and professional athletes and the star of Bravo's Thintervention to everyone. You'll learn when and how to do a tricep stretch and a shoulder stretch, when to avoid toe touches and hamstring stretches, and why it's important to keep your neck relaxed during a hip flexor stretch. While taking you through each movement step by step, Anatomy of Stretching also goes beneath the skin to allow you to see just which muscles you are working during each stretch. Get limber - and get the most out of your workout - with Anatomy of Stretching!
