How To Crush The Beef Jerky In Your Quads & Become A Supple Leopard.

15 Comment(s)



In today’s interview with “Becoming A Supple Leopard” author Kelly Starrett, we discuss everything from  fixing shin splints to addressing tight hips, and we cover every aspect of restoring mobility and getting rid of pain in your body.

If you have trouble moving the way you feel like you should move, get sore lots, or just feel like you have “old joints”, this episode is for you. Kelly dishes out tons of useful tips, including…

-What causes 2% of movement dysfunction vs. what causes 98% of movement dysfunction…

-Why bracing and spine stabilization is so important…

-The extreme importance of something called the “one joint rule”…

-How to figure out your personal “motor control fix” and “mobilization” protocol…

-How to crush the beef jerky in your quads…

-And much more…

    Kelly is fantastic and I love his book! Great podcast as always Ben, thanks! And, I hate to sound like a pimp for Kelly, but everyone should check out the package he did for CreativeLive. It's going to be one of the best ways to spend $99 that you'll find. Especially if you have his book. Alot of the early part of the book is covered in the videos. Again, thanks Ben, great info!

  2. Michael Davis says:

    Hey Ben…quick follow up…Since you are such an avid reader, any good compliments to Kelly's book that you'd recommend? Thanks!

    I can't agree more with Michael Davis…and the Creative Live Podcast…
    Kelly Starrett is one of the great teachers that will transcend history.

    Read the dedication to his daughters….hear the message he tells his children in the creative live video…and then pick up some Emerson, Einstein, or Beatles….

    And if you want to feel better…just stretch out some….:-)….slow down when you are n th presence of kstarr…you couldn't find a better teacher. When the student is ready, the teacher shows up…if you interested in Kelly, he will help you fix yourself…there is no doubt about that….epoch on dudes…and chill…

    Great interview guys – appreciate the terrific content. Kelly – Any tips for a nasty case of annoying tarsal tunnel syndrome? I'm a runner (20 miles per week on average), spin bike enthusiast. Does your book cover TTS? Thanks for your time and expertise. Best, jeff/Tampa, fL

    Great podcast. I really got a lot out of the shin splint advice and walking barefoot.

  6. Great interview! I am fortunate enough to attend Kelly’s weekly mobility class in SF and I always learn allot from him.

  7. Thanks for asking about my hip, dude – I really appreciate. Hope my fellow 'SI Sufferers' benefit from it as well!

    Just curious what your thoughts where on his comment about foam rolling being pointless. I disagree, and I'll have to read his book (I ordered it) but I know you're a big foam roller fan…

    Ben, I have some serious beef jerky tightness in my low back where the psoas meets the spine. How much lacrosse ball smashing is too much? Is daily okay?

    Thanks in advance. Great chat with Kelly!

    I'm going through this book and sometimes I don't quite get the information. Language is a bit heavy. I would like to see some graphics with simple diagram showing in which direction should all those forces be applied. Like the one for shoulder stabilisation.
    Note that for me english isn't mother language.
