Improve your athletic performance, extend your athletic career, treat stiffness and achy joints, and prevent and rehabilitate injuries—all without having to seek out a coach, doctor, chiropractor, physical therapist, or masseur. In Becoming a Supple Leopard, Dr. 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 movement, allowing you to live a healthier, more fulfilling life. This new edition of the New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller has been thoroughly revised to make it even easier to put to use.

Want to truly understand the principles that guide human movement? Becoming a Supple Leopard lays out a blueprint for moving safely and effectively through life and sport. Want to learn how to apply those principles to specific movements, whether you are doing squats in the gym or picking up a bag of groceries? Hundreds of step-by-step photos show you not only how to perform a host of exercise movements, such the squat, deadlift, pushup, kettlebell swing, clean, snatch, and muscle-up, but also how to correct the common faults associated with those movements. Frustrated because you can’t perform a certain movement correctly due to range of motion restrictions? Breaking the body down into 14 distinct areas, Starrett demonstrates hundreds of mobilization techniques that will help you resolve restrictions and reclaim your mobility. Unsure how to put it all together into a program that addresses your individual needs? This updated edition lays out dozens of prescriptions that allow you to hone in on a specific limitation, a nagging injury, or an exercise fault that you just can’t seem to get right. It even offers a 14-day full-body mobility overhaul.

Performance is what drives us as human beings, but dysfunctional movement patterns can bring the human body to an abrupt halt. Often, the factors that impede performance are invisible even to seasoned athletes and coaches. Becoming a Supple Leopard makes the invisible visible. Whether you are a professional athlete, a weekend warrior, or simply someone wanting to live healthy and free from physical restrictions, this one-of-a-kind training manual will teach you how to harness your athletic potential and maintain your body.

Learn how to perform basic maintenance on your body, unlock your athletic potential, live pain-free...and become a Supple Leopard.

This step-by-step guide to movement and mobility will show you how to:

Move safely and efficiently in all situations

Organize your spine and joints in optimal, stable positions

Restore normal function to your joints and tissues

Accelerate recovery after training sessions and competition

About the Author:

Dr. Kelly Starrett—coach, physiotherapist, and author of the New York Times bestseller Ready to Run—has revolutionized how coaches, athletes, and everyday humans approach performance as it relates to movement, mechanics, and the actualization of human and athletic potential. He and his wife, Juliet Starrett, co-founded San Francisco CrossFit and MobilityWOD.com, where they share their innovative approach to movement, mechanics, and mobility with millions of athletes and coaches around the world. Kelly travels the world teaching his wildly popular Movement & Mobility Course and also works with elite military forces and every branch of the military; athletes from the NFL, NBA, NHL, and MLB; and nationally ranked and world-ranked strength and power athletes. He consults with Olympic teams and universities and is a featured speaker at strength and conditioning and medical conferences nationwide. Kelly believes that all human beings should know how to move and be able to perform basic maintenance on themselves. He lives in northern California with his insanely talented and amazing wife and their two young lionesses, Georgia and Caroline. His chief life goal is to spend more time on the beach with his family.
