Becoming a Supple Leopard

I am currently reading the new edition of Becoming a Supple Leopard 2nd Edition: The Ultimate Guide to Resolving Pain, Preventing Injury, and Optimizing Athletic Performance and I must say, it is a pretty amazing book if you have pain from the computer or sitting. For those of you who don’t know the book, it was written by Dr. Kelly Starrett, a coach and physiotherapist who teaches humans how to move in more functional ways. If you are looking for a workout, just picking up the book will provide that as it is huge and is 480 pages of amazing information complete with pictures of various movements along with tests to see how your body measures up.

It would make a great coffee table book or just a great all around gift if you need something for Father’s Day. Or if, like me, you are more of a pained jackal than a supple leopard, the book might provide some help in resolving some of the toll modern living has taken on your posture and health. I hope to post more on the book as I read more.
