Beautiful Presentation Problematic Information 31 octobre 2012
Par Douglas H. Hunter - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
While the visual presentation of the book is impressive, there is too much misleading, or only partially correct information here. I was looking for an advanced stretching guide and this is not it. Here are a few of the problems with the book:

1- There is a lot missing. For example, one of the challenges of stretching the shoulders and chest is that some muscles in those areas are quite difficult to stretch. Rather than addressing that difficulty these muscles are simply omitted. There are no stretches presented for the muscles that form the rotator cuff. P 38 has a picture of an arm holding a weight but there is no discussion of how to make this an effective stretch. The important thing for the Infraspinatus and Supraspinatus of the rotator cuff is inward rotation of the Humerus. If this is discussed in the book I can't find it. Additionally, the Serratus anterior isn't even mentioned; and there are no effective stretches for the Subscapularis or Pectorals minor in the book. It does state on page 47 that the stretch pictured "stretches all the chest muscles and the front of the shoulder" I would say this is misleading because just using that position does not assure a proper stretch of the Pec minor. This is a problem with attempting to use a single stretch to target several muscles, a single position is going to stretch some muscles better than others and some muscles might not get stretched at all.

In advocating for specific stretches its important to take into account the origin and insertion of the muscles, otherwise stretching will be less effective. Examples of suboptimal stretches can be found in several places in this book, here are just a few examples: The stretches for the extensors of the wrist and fingers (p. 56) are not as effective as they could be because the fingers are not flexed. Further, since some flexors and extensors of the writs and fingers cross the elbow having their origins on the Humerus; stretches for these muscles need to be performed with the elbow straight. Thus the "praying hands" position (p. 55) is not the best stretch, nor is the "standing version with fingers pointing down" (p. 56) as they are both performed with bent elbows. The stretches on p. 54 and 55 performed seated or kneeling also have problems. On page 54 the fingers are somewhat flexed, but to perform the stretch properly the fingers really need to be straight. On p. 55 the hands are positioned out in front of the body rather than along side the body. This makes it more difficult to control the amount of stretch. Finally, in the diagrams of the forearms the Flexor digitorum profoundus and Flexor digitorum superficialis are omitted, thus the primary muscles that the flexor stretches target are not even mentioned.

2- Although it was published in 2010 there is information included here that is considered obsolete by some experts. For example, there are several places where the book advocates stretching prior to activity, but the research does not seem to support this widely held belief. Athletes who stretch prior to activity perform no better than those who do not, and injury rates are similar for stretches and non-stretchers alike. (Dynamic stretching may be an exception to this) Also, there are a number of activities shown here that stretch muscles that are being contracted. Stretching and contracting are opposite actions and it's not helpful to attempt to stretch a contracting muscle. Thus all the standing stretches for the hamstrings (there are a good number of them in the book) are not going to be as effective as seated stretches. I know that standing hamstring stretches are very common, but since the hamstrings are "anti-gravity" muscles -they have to contract to keep us in a standing position- better stretching technique is achieved when doing seated stretches.

3- The vocabulary is odd at times. It seems like the authors or the translators (this is a translation of a French title) could not make up their minds regarding the use of correct anatomical terms. Readers used to accepted anatomical language might be surprised to see odd language used to describe things that are easier to describe using the standard vocabulary. I do understand that authors are concerned with making books on anatomy accessible to readers. But it only takes a few minutes to learn the meanings of terms like proximal and distal, superior and inferior etc. So why not just do what most other books do and include a few diagrams in the beginning that show the meanings of these terms?

4- If you have even a little exposure to stretching, then there is a good chance that you already know, and have performed many of the stretches in this book; and you won't have insights as to how to perform them better after reading it. There are ways to do these stretches much more effectively but that information is not presented here. This despite the fact that some headings state that the stretch pictured is "advanced." Sadly, the text often omits the details of how and why to make the stretch advanced.

I am going to say that this title is not a good text to use on its own. I am sure the illustrations will be beneficial to many, but really this book needs to be paired with a good kinesiology text such as Anatomy of Movement, or Manual of Structural Kinesiology.

The Human Body - Revealed! 20 décembre 2011
Par Brenda Frank - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I love Delavier's books and own both "Strength Training Anatomy" and "Strength Training Anatomy for Women." "Stretching Anatomy" is just as useful as the strength training books. The key to the success of these books is the detailed anatomical drawings of the human body, without skin, used to explain the effect of exercises and stretches on specific muscles. Any stretching or exercise is easier and better if you understand the hows and whys.

These books are prescriptions for achieving results. For example, the section on the back (meaning the spine), depicts and explains reasons for lower back pain, how to prevent it, and how to relax the back with various stretches.

Delavier uses the correct (Latin) names for the muscles, with anatomical diagrams and color photos to illustrate each movement. Both male and female models demonstrate the stretches.

In addition to basic positions, many of the stretches have advanced and very advanced positions. Delavier includes "WARNING!" where needed to explain possible negative effects. For instance, the section on necks states, in part: "Warning! Since the cervical vertebrae are small but have great mobility, it is easy to injure them. . . "

"Stretching Anatomy" is very complete. The first section, "A User's Manual" explains the reasons for stretching, types of stretches, breathing, and stretching for athletes. The next section describes the stretches for all parts of the body. Devalier concludes with stretching programs for all levels: beginners, intermediates, and advanced. Then, he covers stretching programs for various sports: golf, running, soccer, skating, skiing, combat sports, cycling, throwing sports, horseback riding, swimming and bodybuilding.

Don't be scared by the intro section with the photo of a women who could be a contortionist in Cirque du Soleil. "Stretching Anatomy" is useful for people at all levels of fitness. We all need to stretch.

Good info...nicely applied 24 octobre 2011
Par R. H. Hollwedel - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
The book mixes detailed anatomical art with color photography to depict stretches for all body regions. It inlcudes some background on why certain exersices should be done, as well as some basic overall principles. While the level of content and range of stretching exercises seems fine for the individual looking for general fitness/wellness help, the book may be more valuable yet for the athlete (weekend or serious), as the last section of the book is devoted to stretching routines that are geared toward specific types of sports activities. In addition to listing and picturing individual recommended stretches in this last section, it also refers the reader back to the page where detailed instructions for each stretch are located. A nice touch for anyone who is using the book with sports performance in mind.

Delavier is the originator of these anatomy style work out books... 11 février 2012
Par Ron Wolf - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
OK, I rate this 4 stars because otherwise, the 5 star rating for Delavier's Strength Training Anatomy books would lose their meaning. The Strength Training books are essentials. Stretching Anatomy isn't quite in that category, but its certainly a should-have for anyone who is active and wants to better understand and care for their body. Delavier is the originator of these anatomy style work out books, and he is by far the best. Stretching Anatomy isn't full of surprises as it contains many stretches that we all probably do already. But, as we have come to expect from Delavier, he compliments the basics with anatomical and dynamic insight into the why/how/what of the movements. One of my favorite Delavier likes are his explanations and cautions regarding specific common injuries. He delivers again in Stretching Anatomy. And the drawings, wow.... The sections on routines to compliment specific activities, including running, swimming, and biking, provide a good starting point for getting into stretching for health and strength.

Disappointed 22 octobre 2011
Par Trigger - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I am planning on returning this book. I pre-ordered this book after buying Strength Training Anatomy-3rd Edition. Strength Training, was such a strong book, with a great layout and beautiful anatomy drawings. However, as soon as I opened Stretching Anatomy I was disappointed. The images are copied and pasted from Strength Training Anatomy. They are blown up and blurry in some spots, and too small in others. The layout is disorganized, with a lot of blank spaces where there should be content. Visually this book relies on generic photos instead of the drawings I had come to appreciate. If like me, you are buy this book with the expectation of fresh drawings and a well designed book, then you will be disappointed. If there is good content in this book, then I did not get to it, because I was so put off by the poor quality of the production. I will reconsider a future edition, if it is improved to the same standard as the 3rd edition of Strength Training.
