I’ve followed Joe on Instagram and saved so many useful stretches on my profile. Not having to scroll and look for a particular movement or stretch is a blessing!
This book has everything I need.
I work in the dental field and sit all day at work, plus driving . My problem has always been hips, neck and back. Also wrists and shoulders. That’s a lot!
And I also work out and lift weights.
I value my job and this book will help me keep it while still enjoying my activities outside of the office.
The book not only illustrates how a movement is safely and effectively done, it also explains how I can benefit from it (even when I didn’t think I needed to stretch or move that particular area).
Thanks Joe! Oh and hardcover! That’s another star but Amazon only has 5.
So here’s 5 stars and an imaginary 6th!
So I had a awful injury in my back and I was desperate to finding solutions. I don’t believe in quick fixes. So when I say solutions I mean something that will provide relief and recovery when I do it consistently over time. I first thought finding good stretches on a web search would be sufficient but surprisingly I wasn’t finding quality info.
That’s when I came across Joe on IG. After having seeing a clear guide of multiple stretches, I have it a shot. I really began to love how I felt when stretching. Something I wasn’t always a fan of. Eventually after 3 months after my injury and doing stretches found my joe, for my case, I had success. From there on, I knew that I could count top value on and trust Joe.
This book was a great, easy read yet super informative. Stretching is super important to the human body, Joe breaks it down step by step, super clear giving the reader a routine they’ll do forever!
Of primary value to this user (see that? Not "reader" - - USER!) is the "clean", easy to use layout. Specifically, each new page presents a given stretch or strengthener and begins with a few sentences "introduction" spelling out the "whats" and "whys" of the given stretch or strengthener. As a question-box, yet with a limited attention span, I like background explanation, in brevity. Additionally, each page dedicated to a specific stretch or strengthener follows the format that includes "cues" (think: hints and tips), "target areas", and "how-to's" - all short and sweet. The pictures of the author demonstrating each of the positions, sometimes from multiple angles, are easy to discern, thus eliminating any "am I doing this right" apprehension.
The overall content and organization is helpful with separate sections denoting stretching/mobility v. strengthening, an intro, index, tools, and routines. Once-upon-a-time a former boss told me when presenting "talk to the dumbest person in the room" (don't assume anyone knows anything about what you're speaking - and do not use acronyms!). I feel like the author accomplished this in his introduction. It's informative, yet relatable. I didn't get a deep-dive into high school chemistry or biology, rather basic, relatable information helping me to appreciate WHY I want to stretch and strengthen (stat)! And as someone easily overwhelmed with tons of options, that the author has provided some optional routines eliminates the panic of choosing the absolutely-most-perfect-combination-of-stretches-and-strengtheners instead providing some training wheels I can take off at a later date.
A couple of final notes worth mentioning are the credibility of the author and his overall disposition. I value that he's a certified personal trainer AND a licensed massage therapist. He's got the education to back-up his claims. And if that's not enough, he's got quite a bit of endorsement from professional athletes - THEY rely on his expertise. He also presents without hard and fast rules, and is not married to his approaches, rather recognizes "not one size fits all" and people will and can modify for THEIR body's needs.
I'm really glad to have stumbled upon Better Stretching. It's working. (Scratch that: I'M working - with the helpful guidance of this book.)
