            K-Star has delivered a masterpiece. Well laid out, in depth break downs of human movement patterns and the classic Powerlifter/Olympic lifts.

            Its both a learning guide and a diagnostic tool, if you're a strength trainer, gym junkie or just someone who suffers from joint pain or lack of mobility, buy this book and read it cover to cover.

                This book is very informative. There are many different and very descriptive stretches that I find will be very useful. It is very well written and quite funny in places also.
