    One thought on “Becoming a Supple Leopard”

    1. Meh. The first 20% of this book is just stupid and almost entirely unnecessary. I'm not exaggerating when I say it could have been condensed to two pages and the book overall would have been the better for it. To save you the trouble of reading a fifth of the book, I'll just sum it up for you. In one sentence: The way that I stand is the right way, and everyone should stand like me.This point of view is distinctly different and separate from the sentence: I like to stand the right way. It's also [...]

    2. When I first finished this book and implemented its techniques, I had absolutely zero idea about anatomy and physiology. Now after delving into how the human body works, receiving formal training, I cannot endorse this book at all. It follows the older line of thought that it is muscle and tissue that controls everything, and that it can force change through outside influences.Going into that further later, I will explain what exactly is wrong with this book, from someone who works in rehabilita [...]

    3. 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 too.If 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 avoid.How does thi [...]

    4. The absolute best reference on keeping your body pain-free while getting fit. Kelly not only knows his stuff, he makes it understandable to the layperson.The detailed pics & descriptions make this book a must-have

    5. Are you tired of being told that your aches / paints / injuries / etc. will go away if you "just do more yoga / strength work / stretch more"? Do you feel like you're just cobbling together a mix of common sense & pseudo-science & hoping for the best without any clear idea of what is *actually* causing your problems and what is *actually* likely to fix things?If so, you might at the very least find this book interesting. Starrett's philosophy is that “All human beings should be able to [...]

    6. 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 wa [...]

    7. I kind of want to give this book four and a half stars instead of five because even though I absolutely love this book and its easily my most useful I feel it has a few flaws.1. Starrett seems to have gone commercial completely siding with Rogue making his website something you have to pay for and this book showing a lot of product placement. 2. I feel even though this is 400 page it could have been longer and more stuff could have been put into it. I remember WODs present on the site that aren' [...]

    8. I love to work out with my main areas being Crossfit, Olympic Weightlifting, and general weightlifting in the gym. My coach recommended this book very early on into my Crossfit journey. I thank the heavens for Kelly Starlett, his books and his website MobilityWOD. There are so many people that come into the box dealing with previous injuries, mobility issues, or are currently dealing with injuries. I've spent a lot of time observing individuals and one big difference is the amount of time people [...]

    9. Today I finished reading “Becoming a Supple Leopard” and I put it #3 on my list of books read in 2016. Kelly Starrett has taken something so simple and ubiquitous--movement--and given us a theoretical framework and practical prescriptions for how to improve how we move on a daily basis at home, at work, in the gym, and in athletic competition.There are some daily reminders that we can all implement, like how to properly brace yourself and create torque before sitting or picking up any object [...]

    10. The mobility work is useful stuff, but I'm left feeling a little bit limited since I don't have a lot of the equipment here at home (boxes, a stable pole to tie bands onto, barbells, etc.)The other half of the book is just silly. There's minimal references to works that would justify what is being said, and there seems to be a lot of contradictions. For instance, one of the trainers Starrett claims to be indebted to specifically says to turn the feet out at about 30 degrees when squatting -- qui [...]

    11. I love Kelly Starrett and so I was excited when I first learned about this book. I pre-ordered it as soon as I could. I was expecting to see his helpful Mobility WODs in book form, with lots of illustrations and descriptions.The book does have a lot of great photos and explanations, but a lot of it deals with the various Crossfit movements, like lifting and even rowing and wall ball. That's helpful stuff indeed, but I'm fortunate to have great coaches at my gym to teach me that already, and ther [...]

    12. Fundamentally, this book is an organization and systemization of the material that Kelly Starrett has posted on MobilityWOD. It covers his axioms of human movement, applies those axioms to teaching correct form on fundamental strength exercises, and provides a set of techniques to address mobility issues preventing you from moving correctly. There's a lot more here than just a bunch of 'stretching exercises'- it's really treating the human body as a complete system and provides a manual for basi [...]

    13. By the first look at the book, this is truly amazing. Loads of images, hints and explanations how to do the various exercises right. It also contains a load of information how to fix common problems like immobilities.If you are into CrossFit this is the ultimate guide. If you want to become a better athlete, this will help you in many ways. I am seriously blown away by the book! After reading and viewing mobilitywod/ my expectations were pretty high, I was not disappointed!

    14. The last section of this book is my favorite. It has a diagram of the body that is color coded by regions. For each region there is a corresponding set of exercises to relieve pain in this part of your body. It is incredibly useful and worth every penny of the book. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the rest of the book is also a useful reference that includes a theory of exercise and lots of exercises that you can do at home.

    15. Takes a while to get through this book but it has a vast amount of knowledge that I now use each time I am at the gym weight its just doing some deadlifts or I am doing some recovery. Every athletic should have this book.

    16. The book has some good info inside of it but it has a lot of filler info (some chapters could be summarized in a couple of pages) and Kelly doesn't take into account basic physiology discrepancies between individuals. Some of the stuff he tells people to correct would actually stress their body because it would be counter-intuitive to how they're built. In summary, it's nice enough of a read but if you're in pain it's best to see a chiropractor than to follow the instructions in the book.

    17. Incredibly detailed book that demonstrates how incorrect movement patterns ruin performance and destroy the body before going to show ways in which the reader can prevent injury through specific exercises

    18. For what it is, this book should have references to support what he's recommending patients. Still, I appreciate that he takes injury prevention so seriously for those doing CrossFit.

    19. Highly technical at times, but also brings it down to the layperson’s level so you can prevent and fix issues. Worth the slog that it is at times. Great resource.

    20. Really great book, however not all applicable to me at the moment. I will need to go back over this many times

    21. This book is the holy grail for athleticism and flexibility. I will forever add these to my workout routine.

    22. Mostly about the supple part rather than the leopard part. Will have to look elsewhere. Effective, nonetheless.
