Unlocking Your Movement Potential with Dr Kelly Starrett

We talked about the importance of mobility for improving movement, function, and prospective healthspan. We discussed the most critical fundamental concepts of mobility and how to build habits for resolving joint pain, and preventing injuries. Dr. Starrett and I also chatted about some of the most common miscues and underutilized types of mobility exercises.
