Where to Go from Here

Stretching For Dummies is a reference guide for beginners and an introduction to performing stretches. You can start reading at the very beginning of this book to gather a little information first, or you can dive right in and tear out the yellow Cheat Sheet in the front of this book to take it with you as you're running out the door to a stretch class.

If you're not sure where you want to start, I suggest browsing through the table of contents to get a sense of exactly what this book covers and what topics interest you. You may find that you already know the basics but have always wanted to know how to use a stretching strap, so you can immediately flip to that chapter (which is Chapter 3).

If you fall into one of the special circumstances groups, you may want to go directly to that section to find which chapter covers your special needs. (Part IV is the section in question.) If you're like me, you may just want to go directly to the workout chapters that pertain to you to figure out some new moves.

And if you already know a lot about stretching and just want to brush up on your technique a bit, you can turn to the index to find out which information pertains to you. No matter where you choose to start, it's great that you're here. Enjoy the journey to your new body!
