New Book 'Ten Minute Stretch' Helps Readers Stretch Their Way to Overall Health and Fitness

The new health and fitness book “Ten Minute Stretch” from certified personal fitness trainer and nutritional specialist Larry Holden covers the importance of stretching and features a variety of stretching techniques that can be done in 10 minutes or less.

(PRWEB) June 28, 2010 -- Athletes, couch potatoes and everyone in between looking for a full-body flexibility program to help reduce fatigue and avoid injury now have a new resource with the publication of “Ten Minute Stretch” by author Larry Holden. In “Ten Minute Stretch” Holden, a certified personal fitness trainer and nutritional specialist, covers key aspects of flexibility and stretching, designed to result in greater functional movement of the body. The book is packed with easy and pleasurable stretching techniques that will help prevent lower back pain, promote relaxation and reduce post-exercise muscle soreness and stress.

“Stretching is truly the way to overall health and fitness,” Holden says. “‘Ten Minute Stretch’ details all of the benefits that this simple, routine fitness program can bring to anybody, no matter their fitness level.”

Cardiovascular training helps participants lose weight and get fit. Strength training helps build muscles and shed fat. Stretching helps prevent and rehabilitate sore and injured muscles by maintaining joint health. A 10 minute stretch done regularly will reduce fatigue and will help participants avoid soft tissue injuries. The “Ten Minute Stretch” is designed to help users increase flexibility and stay limber, resulting in greater functional movement.

“I decided to write this book on stretching because I could not believe how much my life changed since I began practicing my own stretching routine twice a day. I thought it was crucial that I share my story with as many people with sedentary lifestyles as possible, those who want to be more active, but are afraid of injuries that may be part of physical activity,” Holden says.

A full-body flexibility program that’s quick and easy to perform can also help a person reduce fatigue and avoid injury when short on time. Proper stretching should be the first thing done every day. Holden’s “Ten Minute Stretch” will get you motivated for the day with a spring in your step.

As with any fitness program, Holden reminds readers to first check with a physician and get medical clearance before beginning “Ten Minute Stretch” workouts or other training programs.
