Autore: Larry Holden

They did not want Holden to keep the secrets of daily stretching all to himself. Why should you have all the fun? they teased. They were right; exercise is fun; exercise is expression. It is not difficult once you know how to use the power of stretching for your own symptoms. Before beginning the program, Holden recommends checking with your health care provider to make sure these stretching exercises are safe for you. Holden received training in: • personal fitness and nutrition; • anatomy, • exercise physiology; • exercise prescription; • flexibility; and • injury prevention. No one walks alone on the journey of life. The author offers his sincere gratitude to all of his friends.
