A breakthrough book that redefines running performance and injury prevention.
Pliability is the key to running injury free and outperforming the competition. Each year there are 50-60 million people in the US that run regularly, with over 50% of them suffering a running injury. Pliability (the loosening, softening and relaxing of muscles) is in the midst of a major 'movement' in the realm of professional sports, physical therapy and health/fitness to help offset these kinds of injuries. Written by an exercise physiologist and coach at the Boston Running Center, Pliability for Runners outlines what pliability is, why it is important and how to improve one own's pliability safely and effectively specifically for runners. The book addresses issues for all levels of runners from recreational to professional athletes and help increase flexibility and strength.
