What's not new?

I love the stretching exercises. They sure keep you feeling better, and my husband loves the golf stretches.”

The basic principles of staying flexible and fit for a lifetime are the same. Bob's methods of slow, steady stretching—paying close attention to how the stretch feels—haven't changed. The book still reflects the idea that stretching is the simplest of all fitness activities, one that can be done throughout the day—and for a lifetime.
