In our everyday lives, for most of us anyway, it’s not too important to be able to run a marathon or leg-press a car. Rather more important, however, are such things as:

  • being able to get up from the floor comfortably
  • reach something on a high shelf without twinging a shoulder
  • being able to put our socks on without making a whole plan around this task
  • get accidentally knocked by an energetic dog or child and not put our back out
  • etc

Starrett and Starrett, of “becoming a supple leopard” fame, lay out for us how to make sure our mobility stays great. And, if it’s not already where it needs to be, how to get there.

The “ten essential habits” mentioned in the subtitle “ten essential habits to help you move freely and live fully”, in fact also come with ten tests. No, not in the sense of arduous trials, but rather, mobility tests.

For each test, it’s explained to us how to score it out of ten (this is an objective assessment, not subjective). It’s then explained how to “level up” whatever score we got, with different advices for different levels of mobility or immobility. And if we got a ten, then of course, we just build the appropriate recommended habit into our daily life, to keep it that way.

The writing style is casual throughout, and a strong point of the book is its very clear illustrations, too.

Bottom line: if you’d like to gain/maintain good mobility (at any age), this book gives a very reliable outline for doing so.
