    Stretching Exercises

    Does anyone know of any websites with a good collection of stretching exercises, complete with detailed instructions, pictures, and possibly also mini-movies to show how they are done?

    I don't know any websites, but this is a really good book that gives you stretching routines for a variety of sports:

    Sport Stretch: 311 Stretches for 41 Sports by Michael J. Alter.

    Machka- PLEASE get to amazon.com and get Bob Anderson's book called "Stretching". It is the best book out there. It gives a lot of stretches, breaks it down by sport, and gives beginners to advanced options so you can work at increasing flexibility. It also gives illustrations for each type of stretch.

    I like this site:
    http://www.exrx.net/Exercise.html

    It seems more geared towards body building, but if you're looking for a stretch of a particular muscle group, it seems great. I especially like the body maps.

    Second that. It's also got that late-seventies/early-eighties vibe going for it.

    Go to allbookstores.com and find for less.
