    No. Now I have to think of a new excuse to call you a bastard.

I know this now and can not do it anymore.

    It has also really helped with my thoracic mobility (upper back). I finally feel like I'm making progress with my posture beyond what pullups could do for me. With that upper back stuff working itself out, not only is my posture better, but my pushup numbers are increasing, when they had been rather stagnant for quite some time. Some of that helpful info came from the section on pushups.
    Thanks, Jfreaksho, very helpful input. I like the idea of better organized than Mobility WOD, which is sort of "dive in anywhere...or start at the beginning" and while video is very helpful, it is also very time consuming to browse. My local Barnes and Nobles has it in, but at full price. I think i will go take a look at it.

    My shoulders have been aching lately and I would really like to get a fix. Does this book get into recovering rotator cuff injuries?

    Maybe I'll peruse the web site to see what I can find.
    Yes, there is stuff about shoulders and rotator cuff issues. I've been fighting a rotator cuff issue for almost 8 months now and I'm hoping this book will get me further than I've made it with a chiropractor and a non-surgical orthopedist to date. But, before you even get to the shoulder sections, I really like how he organizes things. He starts with the core and builds from there. Just thinking about that right now reminded me to consider my spinal posture as I'm sitting in my chair. It's really organized as building blocks, because most peripheral injuries (unless traumatic in nature) don't come from just in one joint. They are often related to problems elsewhere and all of them need to be addressed rather than trying to cure a single isolated issue.

    Thanks. This is very useful and impressive as well. This may very well be worth the $34 on Amazon if the sample is representative of the rest of the book. The dead lift and pushup descriptions are probably the best I've seen anywhere.

    Yes, it is representative - I consider it worth the full price, but Barnes and Nobel also has it for the same price Amazon does (for members, perhaps for everyone, unsure).
