After a life-threatening accident, Cooley developed a series of 16 resistance stretches that gave his body a degree of flexibility that far surpassed his pre-accident levels. Cooley explains that program here, organizing the stretches into four difficulty levels and addressing personality traits, since, he says, stretching certain muscles can affect non-physical areas in one’ss life. Once he used the program to heal himself, Cooley began to work with professional athletes and others suffering from injuries, including Olympic gold medal swimmer Dara Torres. While these athletes’s testimonies and Cooley’ss own enthusiasm for his subject are inspiring, the principles he describes will be familiar-and hardly groundbreaking-to yoga students. Cooley’ss more direct approach and language, however, will appeal to those who find cues in yoga class too subtle or unclear. The chapter on adjusting the intensity level of stretches for maximum benefit without overstretching will be particularly useful, as will the charts listing physiological, spiritual, emotional and psychological concerns and associated stretches organic meal plans and an extensive resource list. 170 b&w photos. “The best trainers in the world have put their hands on me from Sweden to Japan. And nobody knows what Bob knows.” — Charles Austin, 1996 Olympic Gold Medal High Jumper “It is my strong impression that you have uncovered an entirely new discipline of healthcare.” — Dr. Joseph Mercola “Without the flexibility training that Bob developed for me, I could have never accomplished the five Olympic medals I won in Sydney….I also know that Bob’ss program single-handedly developed me psychologically in very specific ways. With this mental edge, I felt unbelievable. There was no part of me that wasn’st improved….What he has figured out about stretching no one knows yet. The world will give Bob the Gold.” — Dara Torres, Olympic Gold Medalist “I do not think that I could have made my fourth Olympic Team without Bob’ss help.
