Becoming Bulletproof: An Uncommon Approach to Building a Resilient Body
Becoming Bulletproof is not just a book for trainers and fitness enthusiasts. It is a must read for anyone involved with youth sports, parents, and physical education teachers.
As a physical education teacher, parent, and coach I have seen the decline of the physical prowess of our youth. Todays student athletes are so “chair ridden” and sedentary that they have lost the art of moving well. They learn to compensate for their physical inabilities and increase their chance of injury, thus repeating this vicious cycle.
After reading Becoming Bulletproof, and sharing the concepts with my colleagues. We have changed the way we look at our “warm ups” in class and how we assess the quality of movements we use in our lessons. The students have actually improved their screenings and actually enjoy the challenges presented to them because it looks and feels like “PLAY”. As a physical education faculty we couldn’t be more pleased with the progress that has been made in just a short time.
I am so convinced and believe in the theories in this book I use them myself along with my two young children. I want my children to grow up with a “resilient” body capable of what they need and want to do. Weather they become athletes is not the goal, my goal would be for them to be able to play and enjoy a healthy and physical life. A goal I think every parent would want for their children.
In conclusion I want to thank Tim and Mike for writing this book. Having attended several professional workshops, read numerous books, and watched many DVDs related to the concepts, this book wraps it all up neatly. I highly recommend Becoming Bulletproof: An Uncommon Approach to Building a Resilient Body

Thank you Rick! What a great testimonial. I love where you said, "I want my children to grow up with a 'resilient' body capable of what they need and want to do." That is what I want, too, along with being able to keep up with them as they age!
Great workout yesterday:
Spider-man crawled down a hill and then backwards spider-man crawled back up the hill x 20 times.
If you've never tried this, you should. I won't tell you why but you will instantly know why when you start moving up the hill backwards. In fact, try this and get back to me.
Then I carried a 90 pound sandbag for 5 minutes, rested and then repeated.
Have a great Weekend!
