Publisher's Summary

Do you want to feel as nimble and carefree as you were at 21? Do you want to be able to touch your toes or train with no fear of pain and soreness? We all do, right?

Like so many of us, you just don’t stretch regularly and in turn do not test your flexibility, you just assume you have it or naturally do not have it.

Do not worry though, it is not gone forever. But you need to go about it properly; too many stretches are assumed to work when they are just straining your muscles or making your flexibility worse!

There are a set of proper physiotherapist-designed stretches that target the problem area with more than double the effectiveness.

These stretches have been put into a tailored routine to tackle the most common causes of pain stiffness and inflexibility to get you as active and pain-free as you were at 21.

In this audiobook I will reveal:

  • The secret stretches all physios will have up their sleeve
  • The routine that will make you forget flexibility was ever a problem
  • A routine perfect for targeting any strain or pain so you never miss training again
  • Discover how to build on newfound mobility to live a healthier happier life
  • Discover the simple steps to then maintain your flexibility to feel younger for longer

It can even reach a point where flexibility is no longer even considered as a problem.

Is it worth missing out on the chance for a pain-free and more content life to stay immobile and in pain? What have you got to lose?

Exercises for Stretching

As a result of the coronavirus epidemic, I've been forced to work from home, where I don't get to move around almost as much. I've started to experience new stiffness and pains from sitting for long periods of time, as well as a gradual loss of mobility. Quick stretches have helped me to become more limber and agile. This book is a must-have for anybody who wants to do stretches from the convenience of their own house.

Bodybuilder saver!

After 2 years of consistent workout and weight lifting, my body was like a big rock that can make small moves or bending over easily. I was not able to tie my shoes or wear my sucks as I used to do before. I always needed to sit and be so close to my feet to make it happen, lol. I also kept feeling for a long time sore muscles and decent exhausting feeling, which has affected my productivity and focus; with the help of this book, now I'm more aware of the benefits of stretching and flexibility, I barely noticed a big transformation in my moves and the ability to reach my ankle and feet. I started to have one big stretching by the end of the week, following the book's steps to maintain flexibility. I highly recommend it to everyone with flexibility issues

The flexibility of the bodybuilder

I believe everyone knows that a bodybuilder is not flexible like a dancing girl. Personally, I have big muscles and I have a problem with flexibility. I always wanted to be a ninja and flexible like them.

I learned techniques for stretching. Just 10 minutes a day to change my body, your body. I will follow these exercises. So I recommend this audiobook to people who suffer from flexibility.

super amazing

This audiobook is super amazing, loaded with alot of info, after listening to this audiobook, it made me realize so many things, the first thing I just realized is that, a sedentary lifestyle can cause stiffness and pain, even when you’d think it would do the opposite. The second is that generic stretches don’t necessarily work for everyone — we all have different body types and use our bodies in different ways. Thus, we all need slightly different stretching regimens. There is a section of this book with stretching tests so you can pinpoint where your problem areas are.This has allowed me to focus on the muscles that are most in need for me. I would highly recommend this book to everyone.

stretch and calmness

I've done yoga off and on for a decade. Many of the tips are already familiar to me. But this was a nice addition.

Enjoyed the Stretching Exercises!!!

Hard to believe but yes you can regain and maintain flexibility from an audio book. John Cantees delivers a great narration of Milo Kemps Audiobook. Cantees helps in the vision of the techniques in explaining the stretches very carefully which helps me to follow along.

Very helpful

As I have been doing muay Thai for a long time stretching is always been a core part of the sport. And I always look for new techniques to increase my agility especially in the hips and lower body part area and this book is really helped me a lot because due to the pandemic I was not able to train and my mobility really decreases but with the help of this book now am more confident about my movements and especially with my kicks. The instructions are very descriptive and easy to follow. Also, there is a lot of technical advice which you can follow. I am following this book ever since I listen to it.

How important is the Stretching!

As I grew up as a handballer I know the importance of stretching after a workout or even a pre-workout also! In this book, you going to find amazing methods and steps on how to do proper stretching even at home as due to lockdown a lot of us needs to stay at home. Definitely recommended for everybody who doesn't want to get injured as stretching is very good against that and to find a proper balance for your body.

A must for work-at-home

If one thing has been completely obliterated in the last 9 months, it's my flexibility.

Poor posture.
Sitting in a chair for 10 hours straight.
Gyms being closed.

All of the above has left me feeling 20 years older than my age. This book was a Godsend with a number of stretches and routines you can do from the comfort of your home.

Great book

As the author said, stiffness and lack of mobility are very common with many people these days. But you don’t need to be one of those people and suffer from the lack of flexibility. This book is motivational and educational. It clearly tells us about benefits of stretching and how to do it properly. The book is great for those who don’t know where to start from as it shows exactly what stretching exercises to do and how to do them. I’d recommend this book to anyone who spends hours sitting at the desk and is willing to make a little bit of effort to have a healthier body.

What I needed!

I am working from home since March, and after I realize I spent too much time sitting with no movements, I just realize I needed to do something.
Googling on the internet, I found out stretching is a healthy habit to prevent muscles and joints from hurting.
Then I gave a try this audiobook, that just confirmed many concepts and allowed me to grow my knowledge and... it is great!
I am following the guided stretchings almost every day, and I'm finding them highly beneficial.
I think everyone should try it, and why not? This audiobook might be the right mentor for you as well!

A game changer.

I have needed a good stretching routine to add on to my workout for quite some time now. I have realized that cardio and strength is not at all enough for me to have a healthy body; to be frank, I should probably have started stretching much earlier. I loved chapter 4 about stretching routines and workouts—a great audiobook overall, with a whole lot of new and valuable information for me. Only wished I'd picked this up earlier.

Great Listen On Something So Important

This was such a good audio book on movement. It get's you motivated to move and stretch. It is beneficial for people who don't workout or athlete's that do and need to spend more time recovering. I would definitely recommend this book!
