The author tells us that . . . "today's fitness experts have discovered that both stretching and how you stretch can affect how well you perform on the field, court or track." That is the basis of this new book on a most valuable topic.
Those of us who exercise a good deal, often neglect stretching. Moreover, we neglect stretches specific to our sport or functional needs. With this book, there's no longer an excuse for that.
You will discover how to:
Develop full body range of motion Enhance full-body motor control Increase flexibility, balance and muscular endurance Improve force generation and reaction time Correct major and minor muscle imbalances

Should be Called Dynamic Warm-Ups
By RedGhostRider - February 17, 2011
This book is great! if your wondering why I only gave it four stars let me explain. I bought this book under the assumption that I would be getting more infomation on some advanced sports stretching. while there is some stretching in this book, it is geared for pre and post warm-up excersizes up for sports. Now for the Pros. This book is a great step by step warm-up guide, perfect for beginner coaches or self coached persons looking to get a good pre workout/game warm-up and not knowing where to start. As a Marine Sergeant I utilize and am constantly searching for better warm-ups all the time when getting the guys ready for PT (physical training), so this book helps out greatly.
Good Book With Good, Up-To-Date Information
By J. Coberly "Random Person" - February 17, 2011
As a soccer coach, I was very interested in this book because it covers dynamic stretching as opposed to traditional, static stretching, and I hoped it would give me some new (or more efficient) ideas.
As someone who spends a good deal of time learning about athletic performance many of these exercises weren't new to me, but a few were. I mention that because if you don't spend as much time as I do, you will find A LOT of useful information and exercises, and even if you are well-versed, you could very well find some new exercises like I did.
Pros: - Gives a primer on dynamic stretching (for the uninitiated); but it's short (for the initiated) - Lots of exercises - A picture for each step of each exercise - Sport-specific program for several sports including suggested number or reps/distance
Cons: - Explanations are not always clear - The soccer "program" is fairly basic
