About this item

LEARN HOW TO HACK HUMAN MOVEMENT
"Join the movement that has reached millions of athletes and coaches; learn how to perform basic maintenance on your body, unlock your human potential, live pain free...and become a Supple Leopard."
Improve your athletic performance, extend your athletic career, treat body stiffness and achy joints, and rehabilitate injuries--all without having to seek out a coach, doctor, chiropractor, physical therapist, or masseur. In "Becoming a Supple Leopard, " Kelly Starrett--founder of "MobilityWod.com"--shares his revolutionary approach to mobility and maintenance of the human body and teaches you how to hack your own human movement, allowing you to live a healthy, happier, more fulfilling life.
Performance is what drives the human animal, but the human animal can be brought to an abrupt halt by dysfunctional movement patterns. Oftentimes, the factors that impede performance are invisible to not only the untrained eye, but also the majority of athletes and coaches. "Becoming a Supple Leopard" makes the invisible visible. In this one of a kind training manual, Starrett maps out a detailed system comprised of more than two hundred techniques and illuminates common movement errors that cause injury and rob you of speed, power, endurance, and strength. Whether you are a professional athlete, a weekend warrior, or simply someone wanting to live healthy and free from restrictions, "Becoming a Supple Leopard, " will teach you how to maintain your body and harness your genetic potential.
"Learn How to: "
prevent and rehabilitate common athletic injuries
overhaul your movement habits
quickly identify, diagnose, and fix inefficient movement patterns
problem solve for pain and dysfunction in austere environments with little equipment
fix poor mechanics that rob power, bleed force, and dump torque
unlock reservoirs of athletic capacity you didn't know you had
identify and fix poor movement patterns in children
reverse the aging process
develop strategies that restore function to your joints and tissues
accelerate recovery after training sessions and competition
create personalized mobility prescriptions to improve movement efficiency
improve your quality of life through regained work capacity
run faster, jump higher, and throw farther

Kelly Starrett is an absolute genius. He explains movement principles and biomechanics in a unique way that is complex, yet totally understandable. I bought this book because I am interested in improving my flexibility and ranges of motion, but also to help my personal training clients resolve some of their mobility issues. Wonderful investment! Worth every penny.
