I read Becoming a Supple Leopard: The Ultimate Guide to Resolving Pain, Preventing Injury, and Optimizing Athletic Performance by Dr. Kelly Starrett and Glen Cordoza in part because my son told me it was magic for resolving his pain issues. It covers a lot of the same territory as Jill Miller’s work with Yoga Tune Up Balls, but with a slightly different perspective, what I would have to describe as a more, well, male approach focusing on power generation and performance enhancement.
I like power generation and performance enhancement, and if it improving those things motivates the men I know to improve their relationships with their fascia, I’m all for it. There is plenty of theory in the book, but those who don’t want to fill their heads with it don’t need to read those parts. The sections that focus on mobilization for each area of the body may be of most interest to the practical folks, unless they are particularly interested in one painful area.
I will, of course, use it as a handy reference, so clients may find themselves leopardized!
