Stretching, Flexibility, and Recovery

View as

Our stretching, flexibility, and recovery books help support those who want to improve flexibility, strength, mobility, and range of motion. Find your new favorite book whether you’re a beginner or professional athlete or a fitness enthusiast with an active lifestyle. You can even get started today when you download one of our ebooks.

Athletes of all ages and skill levels will find training, pre-event, post-event, and recovery stretches to help strengthen athletic performance in any sport. Learn how foam rolling can improve recovery and minimize injury, and use self-massage techniques to get the blood flowing and allow muscles to work more efficiently. Ready-to-use stretching sequences will help minimize lower back pain, neck stiffness, headaches, and shoulder soreness. Understand how to mobilize the fascia network and assess and correct imbalances with corrective stretch movements from a complete flexibility training program. Get an inside look at the muscles used for every stretch in our best-selling Anatomy Series.

In addition to the books that focus on stretching, our collection of yoga and Pilates books will help you develop strength, balance, and power, improve posture, allow limber movement of the joints, and release tension within muscles.

Whether you're an experienced fitness professional or strength and conditioning coach, athletic trainer, massage or physical therapist, or just starting your journey to become a certified professional, we’ve got continuing education courses that will prepare you to work with clients and earn CECs and CEUs from top certifying fitness organizations, including ACSM, ACE, ISSA, and NCSA.
