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.

Buy this book!! This isn't just for elite athletes, it's a common sense approach to dealing with the aches and pains of life. As a professional traveler my hips were locked into a short and tight position from years of sitting in airplanes for hours at a time. Kelly has shown me that not only do I not have to accept this lack of mobility, I can address much of it myself. That is not to say it's easy - it to years to end up this way, it will take time and consistent effort to undo it. Thanks to Kelly I now have some self help tools to make it possible to undo the mess my lifestyle created. Buy the book!!!
Buy The Physical Book
This book is fantastic! However, this is a textbook style book meant to be carried to your local box and used. He even says the gym is your lab. So, buy it but buy the physical book.
I have been following Kelly Starrett and his mobility WOD blog from it's inception nearly three years ago. This book organizes all of his theories and correct drills into a user friendly format. Worth every penny.
Great job Coach.
