Let me share them with you: For example, instead of teaching you how to throw a baseball, this book teaches you a universal foundation that will help you further develop your pitching skills.

Yeah overall great book mainly for coaches, but also for the athlete that wants to improve. Thanks for telling us about the problem. For me as a MOB coach this made perfect sense for my mobility couurse where one of the archetypes is Lunge – which I found hard to measure, coach and talk about.

By developing your awareness and learning to see across other disciplines, you can tailor any training regimen to meet your unique goals. What I miss is a clear overview of all the progressions – you are here – can you do this le I must admit that I was surprised how good this book was.

Aug 18, Ward rated it really liked it. Amanda Cornish rated it it was amazing Apr 09, And since mastering Lunge gives us pistol it just fits! Moreover, he outlines how to develop progressions for other movements not contained in this book.

The book is freestylf in the progressions which I both like and dislike since the formatting at least in my iBook version created empty pages and pages for one progression. I came to it only for the progressions on the “freestyle four” pistol, handstand push-up, muscle-up, and burpee but found the conceptual framework regarding human movement and athletic programming very interesting.

Locomotion is the most important and vital activities we humans are designed to do Lunging also gets closer to one legged squat required for the pistol.

Worth flipping through, but i didn’t get much out of the freeestyle. It is equally applicable to veteran athletes, weekend warriors, fitness enthusiasts, people trying to pick up a new sport, and people who are simply curious about improving their health. Maximize Your Sport and Life Performance with Four Basic Movements is an interactive way to learn how the body is designed to move through space and how to interact with our constantly changing surroundings.

I wish there was more diversity in the beginning exercises. Deniz rated it really liked it Jun 08, Stephen Collins rated it really liked it Nov 13, Feb 08, Russ rated it liked it.

Free+Style: Maximize Sport and Life Performance with Four Basic Movements by Carl Paoli

Carl is not going to teach you the specifics of a movement or sport; instead, he gives you a template that you can use to develop any specific movement. Oct 03, Steve Gupta rated it liked it. Carls “pyramid” of skill transfer I found Extremely paooi – immediately implemented it in my FLAWD framework for skill transfer of all areas. Dip balance was one of many new moves I added in my arsenal as an athlete and coach. Full of cadl and detailed instructions, the book will be of use to trainers and professional and high level athletes.

And some exercise freestylf in the brief section on programming do not appear to refer to the titles of movements in the main section of the book.
