Written Summary:

This is just a plain good all around tape for both the martial artist and athlete. It concentrates mainly on lower body stretching. The tape consists of 5 sections-Introduction, Warm-up and single stretching, Partner stretching and finally stretching machines. Wallace gives a brief lecture on stretching physiology as an introduction and then gets to the warm-up. The warm up is head-to toe and takes about 5 minutes. From there it’s on to the formal stretching exercises. The warm-up and formal stretching part of the tape are in a follow along format. In other words you hold the stretch with him while he counts. The partner section is nice in that Wallace’s Partner is not nearly as flexible as he is. So you are shown two sets of stretches one aimed at beginners and one for advanced. My only gripe is that this section only does works on one side.The final section deals with stretching machines and how to use them. This may come in handy if you have access to one of these machines but I don’t. I have achieved good results using just the formal stretching exercises. Already my kicks are getting back up in height and my legs feel much looser. This is after 2-weeks of going along with the tapes almost every day.

Overall this tape gives a lot of bang for the buck especially if you get it in conjunction with one the Panther’s specials. Bill Wallace is both very knowledgable in this area as well as entertaining. The tape is well laid out and tries to cover all the bases. If I could suggest one improvement it would be to include some upper-body flexibility exercise as well.
