Review of "Becoming A Supple Leopard"

David Steinberg reviews Kelly Starrett’s Becoming a Supple Leopard at PJ Media. Steinberg describes it as the most useful fitness book ever. Why? "Starrett focuses on the universal need, capability for, and benefit of proper human movement, and provides tips, tests, and benchmarks for reaching your full range of motion, and thus your physical potential." In other words, he teaches proper and natural posture and movement.

Steinberg tried a couple of techniques, including correct spine condition. He notes:
 I have since been consciously checking my spine position occasionally throughout daily activities — like pushing a cart through the supermarket, or carrying a toddler — and noticing a significant easing of pressure on my knees and lower back after I reestablish the neutral braced spine position.
It sounds pretty interesting to me. Read the whole review.
