Book Review: Built to Move: The Ten Essential Habits to Help You Move Freely and Live Fully

I have been pretty active over the years but I'm always looking for different viewpoints so I was listening to a podcast one day and it mentioned this book.  So I decided to buy it used on Amazon and give it a read.  

First off I love the format of this book.  It's broken out into 10 sections on different areas of mobility with each section having a test to see if you need to work on that area.  It then goes on to describe exercises that you can do to help improve your score on the test in that area.  The idea is to test, do the exercises, then re-test until you can do the tests easily.

I have always had issues with my knees and tightness in my neck and shoulders.  After working on those sections in the book, my knee pain has just about gone away and my flexibility is much better.

Just to give you perspective, I do yoga and weight training 3 -4 times a week and I stretch daily and I could barely do 2 - 3 of the tests.  

So far I am pretty excited about finding this book and definitely recommend it.
