Books, Behaviors, and Motivations mentioned in the episode: 

00:30  Introducing Built to Move, the Starrett’s new book, coming out April 4, 2023
00:35  Although they’ve been working on it for over 2 years, it has been in the works for like 10 years
00:50  Our podcast producer, Lisa, is joining us today to do more of an interview style chat for this mini bonus episode
02:09  Why “Built to Move”?
02:45  The core of what The Ready State has always done/talked about is “movement” and they believe this is really the missing pillar of health
03:20  While mobility is a key part of being able to move, there are lots of other factors and behaviors that are equally important
03:30  “Built To” meaning, we’re supposed to be able to do these things
04:05  We are at peak internet craziness, inundated with health information, and it is confusing – the Starretts are trying to get people to basecamp
05:05  Looking at health metrics, our society is getting LESS healthy and more sick
07:00  This book covers a set of behaviors that are necessary for everyone on the planet, and in many cases these are the practices that are missing not just from the general population but from elite athletes and high performers as well
08:35  When Kelly sees a patient, he doesn’t start right in working on their pain point, he starts by asking them a half hour of questions about their lifestyle
08:50  Becoming a Supple Leopard is 500 pages of movement mechanics and theory, but it is missing the day-to-day lifestyle piece
09:50  This is not an exercise book
10:15  Why write Built to Move now?
11:25  Kelly works in a Dune quote: “Our test is crisis and observation”
13:13  Please stop what you are doing right now and watch Doont: A Bad Lip Reading of Dune
14:00  In their younger years, Juliet and Kelly loved to go hard in the paint, and weren’t in any way ready to write this book – but as they age, they are focusing on the idea of durability
16:35  People think these practices are complex, but there is a whole list of health habits you can incorporate into your busy schedule that are not diet and exercise
17:10  After Juliet’s breast cancer/full reconstruction and Kelly’s knee surgery, people felt they healed faster than normal – but they are not mutants and it’s not rocket science – you either heal at the rate of a human, or you heal slower
19:01  Why the title Built to Move is so important
20:33  We have to get people to understand how the processes of your body work together; Matthew Walker
21:07  As an example, the behavior “walking more” helps you sleep better and it also helps decongest your tissues so you have healthier tissues
21:55  Pickleball is a super fast growing sport and has a high rate of injury because middle aged folks are jumping into it without preparing their bodies
22:35  If you want to be able to move and being able to do what you want to do as you age, you have to put some input into your body – ideally before you get injured
25:30  If you are a high performer, this book will still speak to you
27:00  You can take back a lot of control of your health outside of seeing doctors
27:10  One of the huge goals of the book was to show how accessible these practices are – even for full time super busy people
28:09  It’s never too late to incorporate these behaviors that are going to serve you your whole life
28:26  You don’t have to change, you just have to expand your health habits
29:45 You can already pre-order the book everywhere you get your books (since this recording, the actual cover has been revealed in this insane video, so it no longer looks like a dictionary from the 1800s)
