    Great Stretching and Anatomy Suggestions

    I loved the anatomy photos of what the stretches are targeting. Good video to go along with the text. Good background to PNF stretching. The only thing which was frustrating as an athletic trainer is the concept of no passive stretching. This format of stretching is all active, with isometric contractions for the facilitated stretching. Even in the beginning of the book it states that this type of stretching has not been proven to increase flexibility. So, this gives great instruction for stretch positioning and PNF patterns, but may not be the best method of stretching in a rehabilitation setting.
