After over 15 frerstyle of training as an elite gymnast and over a decade of coaching, Coach Carl Paoli offers a fresh philosophy on training by connecting movement styles to fit Everyone cares about physical performance and the fitness industry offers an infinite number of solutions to improve it. After over 15 years of training as an elite gymnast and over a decade of coaching, Coach Carl Paoli offers a fresh philosophy on training by connecting movement styles to fit your specific purpose, greestyle also giving you a simple framework for mastering the basics of any human movement.
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.
Using this framework and four basic movements, Paoli will help you maximize your efforts in sport and life, regardless of specialty.
Despite Carl’s experience as an elite gymnast and a renowned CrossFit coach, this is not a book about gymnastics, CrossFit, or any specific fitness program.
Rather, it is a unique take on how Carl studies and teaches human movement and how you can better understand how to move yourself. 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. 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.
Human movement is intuitive, but not always perfect. This book shows you how to: 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.
By developing your awareness and learning to see across other disciplines, you can tailor any training regimen to meet your unique goals.

Aug 11, Greg Hickey rated it really liked it. He manages to break down complex tasks into discrete actions, explains how to perform each action as efficiently as possible, and how to reassemble these actions into a more refined and stronger complete movement. Moreover, he outlines how to develop progressions for other movements not contained in this book. The book falls a bit short on a complete description of biomechanics, omitting explanations such as why external rotation promotes more stable shoulders and hips and allows for more efficient movement.
And some exercise descriptions in the brief section on programming do not appear to refer to the titles of movements in the main section of the book.
Apr 15, Josh rated it really liked it Shelves: This was a really helpful book. 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. Nov 02, Peter rated it it was amazing.
I must admit that Freeestyle was surprised how good this book was.
I have followed Carl Paoli for several years and used many of his progressions from GymnasticsWOD so I know he was a good teacher but I did not know he was a good writer. The book is “stylish” 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.
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. What I miss is a clear overview of all the progressions – you are here – can you do this lets say 1 Strict HSPUthen move on to this progression.
Let me share them with you: Progressions are flow triggers. Carls “pyramid” of skill transfer I found Extremely beautiful – immediately implemented it in my FLAWD framework for skill transfer of all areas. Human performance is all about: Skill transfer Another one: 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.
Which brings us to LUNGE – which takes squatting mechanics and brings them closer to locomotion application, such as running, walking and skipping. 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 ccarl.
This made perfect sens and transferable as weell. And since mastering Lunge gives us dreestyle it just fits! Another thing I learned is motion helps balance – it is easier to keep a bike moving than to stand still.
Eye opener as well. Pushup is transferable to everything else you do in life One secret: Nerd knowledge like grip is also valuable for a movement nerd like myself. Dip balance was one of many new moves I added in my arsenal as an athlete and coach. But also Old man squat. Most of Carls progressions are extremely good. Wide spread pushup – genius! Yeah overall great book mainly for coaches, but also for the athlete that wants to improve. Aug 18, Ward rated it really liked it. Nov 23, Davidfdz rated it it was amazing.
Nov 23, John JP rated it really liked it. Full of pictures and detailed instructions, the book will be of use to trainers and professional and high level athletes. Jan 27, Matt rated it really liked it Shelves: Love the workout plan, however books are only so good for this sort of thing.

I wish there was more diversity in the beginning exercises. Feb 08, Russ rated it liked it. Lots of impressive photos. Good progressions for the freestyle four pistol, muscle-ups, handstand push-ups, burpees. Worth flipping through, but i didn’t feestyle much out of the text. Oct 03, Steve Gupta rated it liked it. Starts kind of slow, but good movement theory. Feestyle good supplement to online videos for progressions related to pistol, handstand push-up, muscle-up and burpee. Jun 22, Valentin Sushkov rated it really liked it.
Good ideas but it was hard to read. It feels more like a scientific language rather than entertainment.
