Forever useful to say the least

Review by Zane

I am currently in school pursuing my health promotion degree at Emporia State University and also personal train for the student recreation center on campus.

From the moment I peeled the cover of this book back, I could tell I would be using it as a reference for myself and clients for a very long time. Because of this book, I have been able to address and rehabilitate my clients' issues faster than ever before. The amount of comfort I feel when going into end ROM (bottom of squat, end point of bench, etc.) is amazing. There really isn't a limit you can put to the usefulness of "Becoming a Supple Leopard."

Become your own physical therapist for minor tweaks and joint pain. The amount of information, and illustrations, packed into this monumental book are enough to wish you had it sooner.

Change your view on lifting

Review by Christopher

My girlfriend knew I was into crossfit while deployed to Afghanistan, she sent me this book. I love her so much. Whatever is sore, there's a way to hit it with mobility and stretches you would never know about. It also is nice reference for olympic lifts.

great book!

Review by nick

im a certified personal trainer and since ive gotten this book im starting to think of different ways to train and have mobility in your arsenal of tools to help is alittle complicated to read at first especially if your just starting to read about mobility, but what makes this book great is its basically a way you can keep yourself or others supple without having pain, or a need for a chiropractor, or physical therapist

A great gift to receive

Review by Matt O.

My buddy purchased this book for me and it has a lot of great information in it. Maintaining and improving your mobility is just as important as working out. This book has some standard stretching, but it also has a lot of new stretches that I had not discovered before. Additionally, there is a pretty good section on how to properly perform many of the Olympic and Powerlifting movements. It now sits in my gym and is a constant reference guide in my training routine.

total mind fork

Review by jlh7778

Sounds cheesy but this book has changed my life. I am 35 yrs old and have been very active my whole life and I feel like most of what I have been doing I have been doing wrong or at a minimum could have been doing more efficiently. I feel like this is a must have for anyone who is active and concerned with minimizing the body tweaks that come with going hard all the time. I am more aware of everything I do and feel better than I have in years. And lets not forget Rogue. They had a better price than the big book book stores and in true Rogue fashion got it to me fast.

Everyone should have this book

Review by Madhatter

Kelly Starlett and his website,, has changed my body, workouts, and overall quality of life. I thought I had legitimate injuries, but, as it turns out, they turned out to be very minor things. This book has everything an athlete needs to reach peak performance. Very educational about how our bodies are supposed to perform and how we can get them there.

I had this on preorder and could not wait to get in the mail. Very detailed. It has a lot of knowledge but is written in a way to reach the general reader.
