Featuring Bob Anderson, this is a video that offers people daily stretching with a simple, safe format. The video is organized into six comfortably paced sections: a brief introduction, stretches for the neck and back, then legs and hips, followed by stretches for the feet and then arms and shoulders. The tape concludes with a 14 minute overall series of stretches that can be followed daily for everyday fitness or for before or after a specific sport or activity.

You know you should stretch, but do you know how and why? "We all have one thing in common: tightness and stiffness," says instructor Bob Anderson, also author of the book Stretching. Anderson has been the guru of stretching for decades, introducing flexibility training as a systematic practice to millions of exercisers. This 1987 video is timeless. First Anderson teaches you how to stretch in general. "You don't have to be flexible to stretch correctly," he says. You just go to the point where you "feel it, but it doesn't hurt." Next you learn a series of stretches that reduce stiffness, tension, and back pain; help you perform sports better; reduce injuries; and help you look and feel better. The routine is organized into stretches for particular body parts, then a 14-minute overall routine for everyday fitness and following sports activities. This is more an instructional video than a workout. Each stretch is carefully explained, with plenty of attention to correct body position and technique. Anderson demonstrates stretches with another man and a woman. No one in this video is a spring chicken or a contortionist, conveying that these are stretches for the rest of us. No music, no glitz--just stretching, well taught. --Joan Price
