"Stretching" - give flexibility to your body!

“Stretching” by Ace McCloud contains many handy tips how to stretch your body in most proper and effective way. Stretching is natural movement but we can use this as everyday routine to keep our body in great condition.
McCloud shows you how to warm up and practise basic and most advance exercise. General stretch divides into 4 groups like dynamic, ballistic, static and isometric. All of them are very detailed described and supported by examples. We can see hove many variation can be used and different combination. Also timing is provided that is very valuable. Many exercises come from yoga poses and have name like swastikasana or lotus shoulder. For me very important is back stretch because if you don’t do them properly you can hurt yourself.
That is why “Stretching” as a great guide for health and safety is so important. Safe and easy is cat stretch that allowed you to touch the ground by your palms. You can learn how to rotate your hips, arms and bend your knees and legs in different position. Also valuable are hands and neck stretching that you can do even sitting and watching TV! Also from “
Stretching” you can find useful equipment like a resistance band, an exercise ball and weights. You can see how nice and funny can be stretching routine and how fantastic you can feel after that. Highly recommended!

Great guide to get you started with stretching

I have a friend that stretches every morning before she goes to work and she absolutely swears by it and so I was intrigued to see exactly what the benefits are and how to do it properly without injuring myself. This is a very detailed guide that breaks down a number of stretching exercises and techniques and in to levels of difficulty so that you can build up your own stretching routine and not overwhelm your body with stretches that are too advanced.
I had no idea how important stretching was for improving your posture, flexibility, balance and co-ordination. I feel educated as to the dos and don’ts of stretching and definitely want to start implementing it in my life.

Essential book to have on stretching!

What did you love best about Stretching?

The detailed instructions in each section provide a clear outline on how to perform the numerous stretches given out in this book! Great book to have on stretching methods and techniques!

What other book might you compare Stretching to and why?

Any book out there on stretching and breathing techniques however among the ones I've read and listened to, this has to be one of the best. It breaks down each stretching practice fully yet simply!

Which character – as performed by Joshua Mackey – was your favorite?

There are no characters in this book.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I listened to this book as per my need for stretching. Depending on how long my stretching session was determined how long I listened in one sitting.

Any additional comments?

I love any content on ways to build a healthier lifestyle and habits. When I first listened to this book and practiced some of the beginner stretches I immediately felt a difference in my overall clarity and energy levels. The stretches provided in this book are absolutely amazing and I would highly recommend this tile to anyone out there looking for a guide on proper stretching methods!

More important than I thought

This audiobook definitely opened my eyes to the importance of stretching. From the very beginning, it stressed how vital it can be, not just for our physical endeavors, but for our day to day lives. With a wide range of detailed instructions, including the length of time a person should perform each stretch (something that I find I have difficulty determining), this book provides an extremely thorough overview of stretching as a form of physical activity in and of itself. Too often it is seen as an afterthought, and this book really brought it into the light. There are even routines to follow, so a person getting no started isn't overwhelmed! A great listen overall.
