Your body is built to move, but do you know how to give it what it needs for lifelong strength and mobility?
After decades spent working with pro-athletes and Olympians, mobility pioneers Kelly and Juliet Starrett began thinking about the physical wellbeing of the rest of us. What makes a durable human at any age? How do we continue to feel great and function well as we grow older in a world of technology-dependence and sedentary living?
The answers lie in a simple formula for basic mobility maintenance: 10 tests + 10 physical practices = 10 ways to make your body work better. These tests involve no cardio, no strength training and are achievable at any fitness level.
Organised around ten assessments and ten physical practices that anyone can do, Built to Move is designed to improve the way your body feels - less stiffness! fewer aches and pains! - and boost the overall quality of your life, no matter how you spend your time.
This book is your game plan for the long game.
