Checking Out : Becoming a Supple Leopard - 2nd Edition

Looks great.


Looks great.

Remember Kelly Starrett's wonderful Becoming a Supple Leopard? The updated version - the 2nd Edition - is about to hit the virtual shelves. Looking forward to it.

Full review shortly; in the meantime, a quick overview to give you an idea of what the book's all about :

It's Kelly's approach to mobility. A detailed understanding of how the body works; in order to improve athletic performance, reduce injury time and a whole lot more.

Becoming a Supple Leopard - 2nd Edition. Fantastic.

Looking At : Aug 10, 2014.

During the past week we've discussed a number of great links; on Google+, Twitter, the Daily 'Paper' and so on. Here are a few of my favourites.

Anatomy Trains.Anatomy Trains.Eric Cressey introduces a new (to me, at least) concept, explored in detail in the Thomas Myers book Anatomy Trains. This explores the idea of the spiral line, a link between one side of the shoulder girdle and the opposite leg. Fascinating stuff.
Book Review : We're Working Out.

A Zen Approach to Everyday Fitness.



Of course, if you enjoyed these, I'd highly recommend grabbing the Strength & Fitness Newsletter. Delivered weekly, and absolutely free.

(there's also a Daily Update, if you're looking for an even larger dose of training-related goodness.)

NB : If you'd like to write a guest post for Straight to the Bar, or if you'd like to join the team of Moderators here (I love hearing about everyone's training approaches) - get in touch. And if you've got a fitness competition or seminar coming up, add it to the calendar.

Look forward to hearing from you.
