Biographie de l'auteur

Frédéric Delavier is a gifted artist with an exceptional knowledge of human anatomy. He studied morphology and anatomy for five years at the prestigious École des Beaux Arts in Paris and studied dissection for three years at the Paris Faculté de Médecine.

He is the author of the best selling Strength Training Anatomy, Women s Strength Training Anatomy, The Strength Training Anatomy Workout, and Delavier's Core Training Anatomy. Delavier won the French powerlifting title in 1988 and makes annual presentations on the sport applications of biomechanics at conferences in Switzerland. His teaching efforts have earned him the Grand Prix de Techniques et de Pédagogie Sportive. Delavier lives in Paris, France. Jean Pierre Clémenceau is a fitness coach to the stars and has trained numerous French celebrities using an approach based on positioning and breathing. He is the author of over 15 health and fitness books as well as numerous exercise DVDs. He has a background in yoga, shiatsu, and reiki. This author is listed second on the cover, if it matters for your copy. We won t have an about the author page in the book, so this material won t appear anywhere else.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 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 French have a word for folks like Mr. Delavier: Charlatan.
There is much to dislike about this book and little to like. The stretches are no different than what was available 30 years ago, and he shows no scientific evidence to support his claims.
Anyone can go through the internet, find some info that looks good, and put it together to make a "book". But there is no value received here.

The most egregious aspect of this book, though, is found on pages 111 and 112where he discusses the splits and "bony morphologies of the hip".
He leaves out extremely important information: both coxa vara and coxa valga are physical abnormalities resulting from accidents or birth defects and that in informational discussions on these conditions, there is always a THIRD picture showing a normal hip joint. This info is so readily available that I believe there is no reasonable excuse for twisting it around.

In addition, in the Publication Data at the back of the book, there is a sentence that reads "This publication is written and published to provide accurate and authoritative information..." Yeah, right-t-t....

So, no only is Delavier a charlatan, in my opinion, but Human Kinetics will from now on be distrusted as well...

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Good general stretching book 9 octobre 2014
Par JB - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Having purchased the strength-training book by the same author, I knew what to expect. Not every detail is here. For example, as pointed out by another reviewer, some of the more difficult {small} muscles like the pec minor and the 4 muscles of the 'rotator cuff' are not detailed in this book. But if you think you will fix your messed up shoulders by stretching, well . . . maybe you can find a 'how-to' guide on shoulder surgery on YouTube.

Great book. I bought this after purchasing the workout book by Delavier. The anatomical illustrations are excellent, and the organization of the book helps you get a visual representation of where you are supposed to feel the muscle stretches. I was very happy with this purchase.

Great stretching book. As compared to others out there, this one stands out. I would highly recommend this to all.
