I've been using this book semi-religiously since discovering it while working at Majors Scientific (Medical) Bookstore in Atlanta, GA. For truly unkinking and unlocking a body that has sat or not exercised for too long, this is the perfect solution. There are solo and partnered exercises, and the language is clear, concise, and easy to execute. Sketches of muscle areas and their Latin terms further illuminate the areas being worked on, and it is all contained in a slim and handy pocket (or Flexi-book) format. A must have for anyone desiring a toned body and permanent relief from normal lower back pains.
