'Stretching' book cover

INTRODUCTION to the Anderson Stretches

Go to Table of Contents, above.

The cover of the Andersons' book on stretching is shown at the top of this page.

This book is a classic that has been around for more than 30 years, in several editions.

SOME images of stretches compiled by the Andersons are presented here, but how to do them is not provided here at this time. Refer to the Anderson book.

These images will have meaning to those who have done stretching in the past.

These images are meant to remind readers of stretches they may have forgotten about --- and to suggest some new stretches for consideration.

NOTE:
The stretches should be done carefully and selectively --- especially if you have knee or lower back problems, for example.

The Andersons also have a video. Here is the cover of the case for the video cassette.

The book of stretches is divided into two basic parts:

  • stretches by area of the body

  • stretches for various activities (or inactivities)

The images below give you a sampling of those stretches, in those categories.
