  • Dr Knopf explains stretching correctly.
    From Amazon

    As mentioned before, our family really enjoys all of Dr. Karl Knopf's exercise and health books. This is one of the best stretching books you will ever find. If you have not worked out or if you are recovering from an injury, then stretching and Yoga-like exercises are a great way to get started, stay limber and approach weight resistance exercises correctly. Stretching For 50+ takes you through motions, angles, and reps; while offering isolated stretches for specific body parts as well as stretches for compound areas of multiple movement. Dr Knopf give you reasons to perform the stretches correctly. Again, do not buy other authors who happen to publish books for college kids or gymnastic exercise fanatics and then reword the text for the 50+ crowd. Dr Knopf has a long history and long list of success at his university, his studios and with the groups of adults he actually works with every single day. Dr Knopf provides a realistic hands-on approach, which is so much better than other authors and books who really do not care to serve the 50+ exercise crowd.

  • Stretching for 50+
    From Amazon

    Great book I use it daily, easy to follow and very informative, breaks down all stretches for body areas. I can't say enough about how much this book has helped me.

  • Mature stretching
    From Amazon

    For those who are mature or feel they need more range of motion, try these stretches.

  • A book to please
    From Amazon

    I am 70 and this book is amazing to/for me. The excercizes are easy and seem to be helping me. I am very stiff, particularly in the lower back, due to arthritus and I am feeling better after only two weeks of excercizes to date, and I think I will stick with them.

  • Good Book
    From Amazon

    I bought this for my father (61 years old) and thought this book would help him learn how to stretch. He has always been asking for books about stretching and I thought this would be a great beginner book for him. He was very happy to get this book. There are helpful pictures and great explanations in the book.
