"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 ""--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.

Rated 5 out of 5★ by Love this book! Kelly Starrett is an absolute genius. He explains movement principles and biomechanics in a unique way that is complex, yet totally understandable.
