    Really interested in this one. The only thing I hate about MobilityWOD is that I get so caught up in all the mobility tests from the videos I fail that I can't sleep because my mind is racing about internal shoulder rotation and so on.

    I probably should pick this up. Hadn't heard about it but I am pretty interested after seeing this thread and doing some googling.

    Definitely do. I have 'mobility' issues in my hips and starting MWOD (the only WOD worth doing/ looking into imo) and the problems are slowly getting better.

    Do you have mobility issues? Or train others?

    Assess and correct by Cressy and FMS by Cook are also good books in this category

    Ok I'll bite. I haven't heard of this stuff ever, but you guys have me interested. It seems as if a lot of episodes exist, but where is the beginner stock stuff at? All I'm seeing is a bunch of specific type problems, most of which I don't know if I have.

    The book appears to be an organized version of his site. Sort of like how Sissons Primal book is an organized version of his site MDA

    Go to the first post of the mobility blog and start there.

    Cressys A&C book is good too for performing assessments on clients. FMS has lots of fans but I havent brought myself to spend the money to attend a seminar. I have heard positive things about his body in balance book from other coaches but again dont have first hand experience with his work

    Those vidoes literally represent my pre-squat + deadlift regime and general mobility work. It has done wonders for my leg drive and correcting my hip issues.

    So has anyone read through it yet?

    I read all the material and I am at the point where he shows the mobility work for specific areas and I have to say this is a very good book. I highly recommend it. Now I gotta use his guidelines and set up my system.

    Oh that is very good to hear. I havent read it myself (I have been waiting until after finals) but when it first came I flipped through it and wasnt too impressed. The end where he separates movements by region, this seemed to be the best asset of the book but again I havent read it so cant really say. Keep us posted with how your doing with it

    NBA finals? Lol jk

    I found it really good. Granted if you don't use certain movements the hierarchy of movements sections will go fast. His bench break down wasn't the best I've seen, etc. Squat was very good IMO.

    The real value is the laws of torque, understanding his principles on mobility training, importance of consistency, setting up a program, and of course, the actual movements(which is the best asset). If you have been following him a long time(I haven't) then some of this may be repetitive to you and you could skim more.

    And I will do. I was thinking once some more people read it a good convo on patterns and use on training/non-training days could be interesting.

    It is some really good stuff. Especially for people like the forums since we are constantly pushing ourselves, getting tweaks here and there, etc.
