Do you know how to stretch properly?

A tiny change in the way you stretch can make
a huge difference. And if you're not stretching
properly, you're wasting your time; or worse
yet, setting yourself up for an injury.

Stretching BookImagine this... You're in the middle of a workout, or maybe you've just finished your game. Your hamstrings are a little tight so you decide to do a few stretches.

Problem is... You're sitting there racking your brain trying to think of a few good stretches, but you keep coming back to the same old boring stretches you always do. Ahhh... The Frustration of it all!

Don't worry; with these stretching exercises you'll be guided step-by-step by a world renowned stretching and sports injury expert through the exact stretches that will benefit you the most.

tick No more trying to remember which stretch to do. No more trying to remember the correct form and technique. With the Ultimate Guide to Stretching & Flexibility you'll be doing the right stretch, the right way, every time.
tick Plus, there are so many stretches to choose from you'll never have to worry about running out of different stretches to do.
tick And I've simplified things for you by categorizing all the stretches into the major muscle groups of the body. Need a stretch for your shoulders? Flick to that section and there are over 15 to choose from. What about your back? Over 22 to choose from.
I helped Kerrie! ...and I can help you too

For over 20 years I've been helping people achieve their health and fitness goals; and recently I was working with a young lady who was sick and tired of tight muscles and stiff joints. She wanted to learn a few new stretches and improve her flexibility.

Stretching with Kerrie
Stretching with Kerrie

Kerrie had tried a few things in the past, but nothing worked for any longer than a day or two. Her tight muscles and stiff joints had got to the point where it was difficult to sit in one spot for any period of time; so Kerrie decided to get some help.

After talking with Kerrie we decided to add a general stretching routine to her daily workout and a few additional stretches both before and after playing tennis. (That's me on the right, working with Kerrie in one of our one-on-one sessions.)

Within a few days of using my breakthrough stretching techniques Kerrie's general flexibility improved considerably. We then went on to incorporate a number of specific stretches to further increase the flexibility of her back and surrounding muscles like the hamstrings and shoulders.

The improvements over the next couple of weeks were remarkable. No more pain. No more tight muscles and stiff joints. No more straining to bend down. And best of all, she could now play tennis without her lower back tightening up and her legs getting sore and tired.

Optimum health and peak performance...
"(Brad's book is) an excellent, important guide to optimum health and peak performance. Read, learn, implement and enjoy the benefits of wellness and enhanced quality of life."
Dr Denis Waitley (PhD) (Author & Past Chairman - US Olympic Committee)
I make it super simple to understand

As I said earlier, I've been helping people achieve their health and fitness goals for a long time, and a few years ago I noticed that a lot of the problems people were coming to me for could be easily fixed with a simple stretching program.

So I started to look for an easy-to-use guide to stretching. A book that took stretching seriously with a detailed list and picture of every possible stretch a person can do. In my search I found many books where stretching got a mention, but nothing more than a page or two of vague generalizations and a few stick figures performing some very basic stretches.

I couldn't believe there was nothing available for the average person. That's when I decided to write the Ultimate Guide to Stretching & Flexibility.

Don't Get Me Wrong... This Ain't No Whimsy Book About Plain Stretching!
Stretching Book - stretch005
Stretching Book - stretch002
Stretching Book - stretch001
Stretching Book - stretch004

Unlike guides with only hand drawings or stick figures, the Ultimate Guide includes real photos of real people showing you exactly how each stretch works!

Take a look at some of the pictures on the right, which are taken straight out of book.

You DON'T need any special, costly equipment or training to make the most of your workouts, maximize your performance, and get rid of those annoying, nagging pains you can never seem to do away with!

Best of all, you can implement my techniques in just a few minutes as part of your regular workout or warm-up routine.

The Ultimate Guide to Stretching is one of the only books available today to contain photographs (not diagrams, cartoons or illustrations) of 135 unique, individual stretches. Yes, one hundred and thirty five!

And I mean 135 unique, individual stretches: Not 5 variations of 20 stretches, but 135 different stretches.

Each stretch targets a specific muscle group, and comes with a clear, high quality photograph, as well as a step-by-step description of exactly how the stretch is performed. No room for guessing!

My techniques boost performance and cut recovery time by days

The Ultimate Guide to Stretching & Flexibility teaches everything you need to know to maximize your workouts and minimize your injuries. You'll discover how muscles react to exercise, and why your muscles get sore after a workout. Plus 9 important types of stretching to help prevent sports injury and put a stop to post exercise muscle soreness.

This information will keep you injury-FREE and on top of your game. With the Ultimate Guide, you get all the information you need to maximize your workout, including:

tick The simple stretching techniques to help you run, swim or ride faster — yes, faster! — without training any harder.
tick The secret list of 23 back stretches to do away with back pain for good! (Your chiropractor will hate me for this!)
tick The one thing you must do before playing any sport or doing any exercise. (And it takes less than one minute to do!)
tick The 6 rules to get the most out of your stretching and sports injury prevention... Violate these rules at your own risk!
tick How to warm-up properly to cut your chance of sports injury by over 50%... That's right, down to half or more (likely more!).
tick The biggest mistake you can make after a tough workout. (Surprise! Most people ignore this simple yet costly rule...)
tick How to test and monitor your flexibility and susceptibility to sports injury using this simple method (it's as easy as 1-2-3!).
tick The one technique to chop down your recovery time by days, if not weeks. (Imagine a recovery in 1 or 2 days instead of weeks...)
tick The simple but little-used regimen that's not only essential but also critical to a full recovery! (And it's not what you think.)

And so much more! This is only a small sample of the exciting information included in the Ultimate Guide to Stretching & Flexibility.

I recommend it to my patients...
"Up to now, while there has been a plethora of books about, 'How to.......', 'The benefits of.......' exercise, there has not been much advice offered regarding stretching. I believe your book fills that gap very well. Stretching is a very important and often neglected part of exercise. I congratulate you on your efforts and look forward to recommending your publication to my patients."
Dr John Flynn (M.B., B.S.) (Sports Medicine Australia)
A must for anyone in the fitness industry...
"A thoroughly professional and comprehensive book on a subject that previously was very much neglected. It will play an important role for coaches and athletes in preparation for their specific sports. The Ultimate Guide to Stretching is a must for anybody involved in the health and fitness industry."
Tony Green (Strength & Conditioning Coach - Gold Coast Chargers RLFC)
I had no idea stretching was so important...
"The Ultimate Guide to Stretching has given me a greater understanding and appreciation of the importance of stretching. After reading the Ultimate Guide my coach and I decided to write specific stretching time into my program, thus taking stretching far more seriously. It is definitely a book that anybody wanting to exercise and even more so, elite athletes, should have by their side."
Greg Bennett (World Champion Triathlete)
Stretching BookThe workout optimization and injury prevention "Bible"

The Ultimate Guide is the book you keep with you wherever you go. It's great to refer to when you need information or a photograph of a particular stretch for any part of the body. It's a complete reference handbook that assists in the planning and implementation of your training and rehabilitation sessions.

That's why the Ultimate Guide has gained a reputation as being one of the most user-friendly publications on stretching, flexibility and sports injury prevention on the market today! So what does that mean to YOU?

It means you don't have to struggle with medical jargon or complex data that only drives you further away from your goal, or takes hours to learn. The tips and techniques you'll learn don't come from textbooks or long-winded academic references, but from years of experience with world-class amateur and professional athletes!

Bottom-line, it is an absolute "must have" guide for anybody wanting to improve their athletic performance and eradicate muscle pain for good. Here's what's included...

tick 144 pages in a convenient A5 size (5.8 x 8.3 inches or 148mm x 210mm), featuring 150 photos of 135 unique stretching exercises.
tick Chapter 1 provides a basic overview of physiology, fitness and flexibility.
tick The many benefits of stretching are outlined in chapters 2 and 3.
tick Chapter 4 details the different types of stretching.
tick While stretching guidelines (i.e., rules and "how to") are presented in chapters 5 and 6.
tick Chapter 7 deals specifically with flexibility testing.
tick While the final chapter and ultimate strength of the book, contains 135 photographs of each stretch with step-by-step instructions.
tick And a unique spiral binding that allows the book to lay flat without closing on itself, which means you don't have to hold the book open with one hand while you're trying to do the stretches.

What's the media saying?

The Ultimate Guide to Stretching & Flexibility has undergone rigorous reviews by some of the most respected professionals in the health and fitness industries; receiving outstanding endorsements from the world's sporting elite. Check out what a few well-known fitness magazines say about the Ultimate Guide...

Runner's World
Runner's World"Anything that can motivate you to stretch sensibly and more often has to be a good thing. The physio recommends it, even demonstrates the latest, deepest and best. You go through the motions a couple of times until you are over your injury and then the routine stops. The Ultimate Guide to Stretching & Flexibility is the book that will motivate you to stretch sensibly and more often."

 

Bicycling
Bicycling Australia"The Ultimate Guide to Stretching gives you a comprehensive array of stretches. The book outlines the benefits of stretching for maximum performance and injury prevention. Over 130 exercises are illustrated and explained. The author is a prominent Australian sports trainer with more than 20 years experience in the health and fitness industry."

 

Sports Coach Magazine
Sports Coach Magazine - Vol 20,  No 4"The Ultimate Guide to Stretching & Flexibility (formally the Stretching Handbook) is designed to be a very portable, quick reference guide for athletes and coaches rather than an academic reference. To this end it is a very practical text with concise chapters written in an easy to read manner but without being punctuated by research findings or scientific references. Overall, it's well laid out, user friendly and very suitable for athletes and developing coaches. It is a welcome addition to the limited number of texts which deal with stretching for sport."

 

Good Medicine
Good Medicine - July 1999"Exercising while your muscles are stiff and cold is asking for trouble. According to Sports Medicine Australia, close to 6000 people sustain injuries every year, 50% of which could have been prevented by warming up properly first. Many people though, are not armed with enough information to stretch effectively. This is where the Ultimate Guide comes to the rescue. This 144 page spiral bound book contains 135 photos that clearly illustrate the correct stretching techniques."

 

Total Sports
Total Sports - Sept 1998"This is a back-pocket handbook not a sit-on-the-shelf text book, says author and prominent Australian sports trainer, Brad Walker. This text is an easy-to-use, quick reference guide for everyone involved in health, fitness and sporting activities. With clear photographs and instructions accompanying each individual stretch, the book has been designed to provide invaluable assistance to coaches, trainers and athletes when planning and implementing their training sessions. It aims to minimize the likelihood of sports injury through poor preparation and increase athletic performance.

 

Triathlete
Australian Triathlete Vol 5, No. 10"When Brad Walker scoured the shops looking for a comprehensive guide to stretching, he says he was continually disappointed. So, he decided to write his own. We all know we should stretch and that it plays a major role in minimizing our risk of injury and aiding our recovery from training and competition. But how many of us have skipped stretching, or done it in such a way that it really gives limited or no benefit at all? Perhaps now, with the knowledge from the Ultimate Guide you'll make the commitment to include a range of stretches in your training regime."

 

Swimming and Fitness
Swimming and Fitness Nov/Dec 1998"With over 130 different stretches for the entire body, the Ultimate Guide is a comprehensive guide offering detailed information of the importance of stretching for all active participants in sport from the elite through to seasoned veterans. The book outlines the four types of stretching; explores the physiology of stretching; the dangers and limitations of poor flexibility; the benefits to be gained from a correct stretching routine; as well as the rules for a safe and effective stretching routine... This back-pocket handbook is a well written, easy to use, quick reference guide."

 

Triathlon Sports
Triathlon Sports April/May 1999"This very portable, yet comprehensive reference book about stretching is valuable for any athlete wanting to avoid injury and improve performance. This latest edition contains 135 high quality, black and white photographs of stretches indexed under specific body parts, with brief easy to read descriptions of each. What is different in this book to other stretching guides is the division of stretches into three levels according to your range of flexibility: general, intermediate or advanced. The benefits, types and rules of stretching and flexibility testing are also addressed. If you aren't sold of the importance of stretching for enhancing performance, you will be after this read."
