In a direct answer to the needs of the modern runner, Dr. Kelly Starrett, author of the bestselling hit, Becoming a Supple Leopard: The Ultimate Guide to Resolving Pain, Preventing Injury and Optimizing Athletic Performance, has focused his revolutionary mobility and movement philosophy on the injury-swamped world of the runner.
Despite the promises of the growing minimalist shoe industry and a rush of new ideas on how to transform running form, more than 3 out of 4 runners continue to suffer at least one injury a year. Although we may indeed be Born to Run, life in the modern world has trashed and undercut the dedicated runner wishing to transform his or her running form. The harsh effects of too much sitting and too much time wearing the wrong shoes has left us shackled to lower back problems, chronic knee injuries and debilitating foot pain.
In Dr. Starrett's new book, Ready to Run, you will be taught the essential standards for preparing your body for a lifetime of top-performance running. You won't only be ready to run in a minimalist shoe you'll be prepared to run in any shoe.
