Simon Ward, The High Performance Human Triathlon Podcast

How to be in The Ready State * Simon Ward and Dr. Kelly Starrett

February 10, 2021

In this week’s show, I’m joined by strength and mobility expert, Dr. Kelly Starrett.  Dr. Kelly Starrett is a coach, physical therapist, two-time New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestselling author, speaker, and co-founder of The Ready State, the world’s most comprehensive collection of guided movement, mechanics, and mobility instructional videos.

Kelly is super knowledgeable, was great to chat with, and we cover a whole range of subjects including:

  • Definition of mobility
  • Doing what works and rejecting what doesn’t
  • Should we refer to mobility as ‘position transfer exercise’?
  • Creating a durable body so you can ‘play’ as much as you want, and doing the best with your body in the context of your life
  • How much mobility should we do each day?
  • Using social media as a teaching platform?
  • Why good mobility allows you to control, NOT compensate
  • Foam rolling - yes or no?
  • The pursuit of ‘adventure fitness’ rather than racing
