You may not be Kelly Starrett, but you can still use some very basic assessments to discover tightness in your athletes.
Working with Jason Khalipa at San Francisco CrossFit, Starrett puts the owner of CrossFit Santa Clara through several basic mobility tests to discover exactly where he’s tight. Once those sticking points are discovered, Starrett can form a plan of action to correct the problems and unlock improved performance and optimal movement mechanics.
In Part 4, Starrett uses manual therapy techniques to start rebuilding Khalipa.
Starrett is a doctor of physical therapy and the owner of San Francisco CrossFit.
