Science of Stretching by Alex Reid

The Science of Stretching is a research-based book that brings together the scientific principles of many different modalities of stretching and its application to the general and sporting populations. The book reviews static stretching, dynamic stretching, ballistic stretching, vibration platform, PNF, myofascial release, Pilates and Yoga, as well as post-operative, chronic and acute injury benefits. Appropriate prescription, application and expected outcomes are explained, which will revolutionize the way you choose to stretch. The effect of stretching on performance indicators, like delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS), running economy, speed and power, as well as chronic pain, growth-related, acute and chronic injury and exercise-associated muscle cramp are all reviewed and discussed from the latest research. The research indicates both positive and negative outcomes from stretching on performance indicators and some modalities are more relevant for certain populations than others. This book will help you take the guesswork out of stretching, and is fully illustrated with 160 colour photographs and 10 diagrams.
