for the majority of CrossFitters (and the general public); lack of mobility and less than optimal movement patterns. Starrett runs through every movement you’ll see in your Box from burpees to squats, pull-ups to snatches, and goes into great detail about the movement patterns involved. You soon realize the commonalities between the different movements and the things you can do to improve your range of motion in each of them.
Starrett breaks the body down into 14 distinct areas which he’s goes through in detail, demonstrating common faults and mobility restrictions, how to measure them and how to improve them. Importantly Starrett spends great lengths at describing how you can find and fix the restrictions in your body. There are hundreds of pictures that demonstrate the author’s points and allow the reader to understand the stretches, exercises and issues of each one.
This book is a must read for everyone from newcomers to elite Games athletes.
