002: Better Mobility, Better Life with Kelly Starrett

The Better Man Podcast

Today, I’m speaking with Dr. Kelly Starrett. Kelly is a Mobility Expert, Coach, Physical Therapist, and Founder of The Ready State—which has revolutionized how athletes think about human movement and performance. He has worked with Olympic gold medalists, UFC champions, elite military forces, and dozens of professional sports organizations. But he doesn’t just work with top performers… Kelly’s mobility principles apply to everyday people who want to prevent injury, improve mobility, and live a pain-free life. He believes that every human being should know how to move and be able to perform basic maintenance on themselves—and that’s exactly what this episode is all about. Unfortunately, most people only think about mobility when pain enters the equation. But Kelly’s on a mission to change the conversation, because how your body moves and having good access to your physiology is critical for living a better life. We talk about fundamental movement principles, structured training vs. play, why health isn’t something you win, lazy tribalism, stress, sleep, family, and much more! Key Takeaways with Kelly Starrett How Kelly and Dean met Why most people can’t access their full physiology. Don’t wait for pain to change your behavior. Avoid information overwhelm and focus on the fundamentals. The problem with only doing yoga. How do you organize your body in a way to have the most access to your physiology? How much formal gym training do you really need? How small gains can add up to remarkable improvements. Advice for doing life with your family. How much sleep should you aim for? Why saunas are such an incredible stress reliever. The importance of cultivating a tribe of friends that support one another. Connect with Dean Pohlman Facebook YouTube Instagram
