I've stretched fairly aggressively over the years with the knowledge I had, but I've made significant gains over the past couple weeks with the information contained on these pages! If you want to do the splits you should get this book! I bought the book as a supplement to the DVD.

I wrote in my review of Pavel Tsatsouline's book Power to the People! In Beyond Stretching: Russian Flexibility Breakthroughs, he again offers result- producing methods, this time for increasing flexibility, while again violating what has been held as truths ever since you were in grade school gym class. Pavel's writing style is no nonsense, efficient and quite often funny. If you are looking to be coddled, you won't get it from him.

It dispels a lot of classic stretching myths and gives some good solid approaches to achieving better flexibility.

In the three years since the release of Beyond Stretching I have given many flexibility seminars to a variety of groups, ranging from mere mortals to elite martial artists and SWAT officers.
