Kelly Starrett Episode 78

How To Be A Better Human

Bio (@mobilitywod)

Dr. Kelly Starrett is the author of the The New York Times bestsellers Becoming A Supple Leopard and Ready to Run, which have revolutionized how coaches, athletes and every day humans approach performance as it relates to movement, mechanics, and the actualization of human and athletic potential. Kelly is also the co-founder of San Francisco Crossfit and MobilityWOD.com, where he shares his innovative approach to movement, mechanics, and mobility with millions of coaches and athletes around the world.

Kelly travels the world teaching his wildly popular Movement & Mobility Course and also works with elite Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and Coast Guard forces, athletes from the NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB, and national and world ranked strength and power athletes. He also consults with Olympic teams and universities and is a featured speaker at strength and conditioning conferences nationwide. Kelly’s work is not limited to coaches and athletes – he applies his methods to children, desk jockeys, and anyone dealing with injury and chronic pain. Kelly believes every human being should know how to move and be able to perform basic maintenance on themselves.


Episode at a Glance

HE’S BACK! Our good buddy Dr. Kelly Starrett jumps back into the conversation on Episode 78. This time KStar clues us into all the information behind his new book Deskbound.

This conversation is probably one of the most intense, honest pieces we have ever done. You’ll probably need to listen to it more than once because we get into a wide array of subjects like: the future of physio’s, why the universe is fat (and how to fix it) and how to deal with a culture that is based on sitting…and that’s about 10% of it. You gotta check this one out and if you have a question PLEASE leave it in the form of a iTunes review. Kelly will be answering the best questions on our next Friday short.


Quick Show Guide


Right now the physio’s have their head up their asses. Find out why KStar thinks that phyio’s need to catch-up with what’s going on in the real strength and conditioning world.


If you are a coach listen here to learn how to connect the dots between incomplete mechanics, pain and injury.


So why write Deskbound? What’s the need for a book about moving better in the traditional work space?


As a coach, how do you safely challenge the positions your athletes are in  to find out what their “mobility weaknesses are”?


Kelly’s Rant On Apologetics


Why did Kelly write Deskbound? It doesn’t seem like it’s actually for corporate America, but someone else? Is this true?


Has technology permanently relegated movement to being something that we only do as a means of exercise? How do we make movement more important and out do the natural tendency to be sedintary.


The facts are in standing at the office increases performance as well overall health, so why isn’t everyone standing at work?


I am a desk jockey, what should I be doing to combat this? Find out what KStar thinks.


How does KStar keep his kids involved in the MobilityWOD/SFCF business?


Do we need to be training our coaches to be better people?
