Magnificent Mobility by Eric Cressey and Mike Robertson

Overview:

For coaches familiar with programming, this is nice collection of dynamic stretches with instruction on how to do them and coaching points for getting them right.

Individuals without programming experience should be able to get some use out of the video, although they are going to have to work harder for it.

Review:

Sound quality is good
Video quality is good

The main video goes into the details of why dynamic stretching is recommended over static stretching. It covers the conventions used in the video, and then it dives into the exercises one by one.

The dynamic stretches are broken up into 3 categories: Easy, Medium, and Difficult.

Each exercise has it's own segment wherein it is demonstrated multilpe times. Before moving on to the next exercise, coaching points are listed, along with a recommended # of reps.

There is also a short segment on a few recommended static stretches (although it isn't quite clear why those static stretches are recommended whereas static stretching in general is not)

Presentation is a la carte. There are no recommended warm-up regimens, instead the instructors recommend adding 8-10 of the dynamic stretches to your warm-up.

There is also an e-manual (.pdf) available that is a transcribed version of the video. If you have the DVD and access to a DVD player, I don't see any need for the e-manual as it doesn't appear to provide any additional information.

To make the information a little more accessible to individuals without programming experience, I would have liked to have seen recommended regimens similar to the Posture Alignment book by Paul D'Arezzo. I use this book as an example because it also takes a large number of stretches/mobility exercises, but instead of simply presenting them a la carte it tries to bring them together into a useful system.

One warm-up of 8-10 exercises pulled from their lists that was designed to stretch the whole body would have been sufficient (although 2-3 would have been even more useful).
