    Awesome Stretching Book!

    "Active Isolated Stretching, the Mattes Method."
    http://www.usastrecthing.com

    It is pretty commonly used in high level massage therapy, conditioning and PT. I highly recommend it as an alternative to static stretching. You will increase the range of motion your joints have much faster than traditional stretching.

    Remember, flexibility work should be done on every that ends in "Y."

    Al,
    just curious how the techniques in this book differ from "The Wharton's Stretch Book: Active Isolated Streteching."
    link

    i have had this book for years and was curious if i should pick up the Mattes Method to replace The Wharton's.

    Thanks!

    It sounds the same, but the Matts book may give you some more variety.
