I finished the book a while back but am just getting around to posting a review Kelly Starrett is really well known in the Crossfit community As a Crossfit gym owner and Doctor of Physical Therapy he has carved out a really niche of expertise as being the joint form and mobility guy of crossfit In addition he has posted a ton of really useful videos to youtube over the past couple years that have made him a well known name So when he announced the book many people pre ordered and I was one of themThe book is good though it has a couple flaws I'll get to those later It's organized in two main parts The first section deals with categorizing all the major crossfit movements from gymnastics olympic lifting etc Deadlift Clean Jerk Pullups Handstand Pushups and many are organized based on the degree of difficulty mostly having to do with how dynamically one has to stabilize the load form I liked this section as the logic made a lot of sense modulo the flaws belowThe second section discusses all the major muscles joints in the body and covers a range of techniues of how to better stretch mobilize floss and otherwise work them into better range of motion and stability This section was also useful but made less sense to read logically back to back rather than a reference to build a program from andor to mix up a program of mobility workThe flaws I found with the book are threefold Two are relatively minorFirst Starrett uses a little too much 'bro speak' in his language It's fine and what we've come to expect in his videos which are uite conversational in tone but in print it feels a little cheesy This is a minor complaintSecond given the huge number of videos he's posted in the past there's probably very little here that you can't get by watching all the videos for free However I didn't mind paying some extra to have all of the same information in a logically organized form It would also be nice to provide some referencelink to any youtube videos where those made sense to add clarity to the textpictures in the bookMy third and only major complaint is that the book could have really benefited from spending some money on an anatomical illustrations When Starrett talks about torue in the shoulder capsule it would be nice to have some actuall under the hood illustrationsThese things aside I still found the book useful and would recommend it to all crossfitters

Highly recommended if you are an athlete trainer coach or someone with a physically strenuous job I don't really fall into any of those categories but the book was for me tooIf you weight train I'd call this book essential You need to know you're performing your lifts correctly to both maximize your potential and to prevent injuries that can be exacerbated by repetitions over time The book is full of photographs demonstrating a variety of exercises and common faults to avoidHow does this relate to me A lot of the gym exercises are models for movements we use in everyday life Picking up laundry your kids or any lifting really How many times do you sit down and stand up in a day Suats are a model for how to do that without ruining your kneesIf you don't want to be a hunched over pain ridden person when you get older this book matters to youI first saw Kelly Starrett on a segment of a Creative LIVE workshop He has a doctorate in physical therapy owns a CrossFit gym and has worked with thousands of athletes to resolve injuries and improve their performance He has seen his work in actionI was intrigued by his talk about mobility and started watching and trying his free Mobility Workout Of the Day videos from the beginningI've been doing what I call easy yoga for years with little change I've always been inflexible and figured that's just how it was After doing some of Kelly's MWODs I noticed some improved flexibility Kelly believes we can all improve our mobility and I am on boardIt's not fast or easy but with his test do a mobilization and retest approach you can see the results Even if I skip the testretest I can usually feel the differenceChances are you don't realize how matted down your tissues are and the amount of mobility you are missing A lot of us spend a lot of time sitting in front of computers every day That takes a significant toll on the bodyThe book contains over 170 pages of mobilizations broken down by parts of the body with text and photographs demonstrating the actions and what they help or improveMany are scaled for different levels of ability which is good because even when I look at something and think Oh I can do that I often find I'm too stiffThere are a lot of different actions to try I found myself reading then going back a few pages to try something out before continuing It's a great reference that I will be using oftenI'm committed to his 15 20 minutes a day for mobility work The beauty is you don't even have to do it all at once You need to do 2 minute chunks to effect change generally but you can split it up and fit it into your dayI dinged it a star for typos and no index though the contents are pretty good I also wish he'd put his basic approaches for the mobilizations in the glossary for easy reference eg smash floss pressure waving paper clipping I bookmarked that section so I can refer to it as I assimilate his vernacular and try out his MWODsThe book is a lot of info to take in so might want to see what his Mobility WOD videos are like to see what you think first I really like that he loves the scifi movie Dune even though he's a big athletic flexible guy I also enjoy reading and hearing about how the body's muscles bones and fascia interrelate His content is smart and accessibleIf you're not ready to put in some effort 2 minute chunks that may be uncomfortable to effect change you might not be ready for this book I still recommend it though since there are things you can incorporate into your dayETA 111215 Sounds like the 2nd edition is a significant improvement as it includes an index 80 or so pages of content and has been rearranged some to make it easier to us
