This Week on Strengthcoach.com

Posted in Uncategorized on January 19, 2009 by mboyle1959

This week on strengthcoach.com is female athlete week. Two of our articles will deal with endurance training and female athletes and one will deal with strength training

The first article was one I wrote last week in response to a forum post about females and distance training for basketball. The article is called Should Female Athletes Run Distance. The great thing about the forum is that is often a good source for inspiration. This article will help young strength and conditioning coaches deal with uniformed sport coaches and will help young personal trainers deal with uniformed parents.

Next up will be a reprint of an old series I did along the same lines called Should Women Run? This was very controversial when I wrote it because I originally published it on a consumer site. This series was originally three parts but is reprinted here as one. I’m republishing it to give some background to Monday’s article.

The last article comes from our friends at Virginia Commonwealth, Tim Kontos, David Adamson and Sarah Walls and is called Top 10 Reasons Heavy Weights Don’t Bulk Up the Female Athlete. The article was originally published on Elitefts.com and is a great piece for female athletes to read.

Last but not least is our video of the week. This week we’ll show a variation of the Reaching One Leg Straight Leg Deadlift.

As always don’t forget Episode 27 of the StrengthCoach Podcast www.strengthcoachpodcast.com .

Last but, not least if you missed our Fat Loss Secrets Webinar you can still go to www.fitnesswebinars.wordpress.com/get-previous-webinars . Once you purchase it, you will be sent an email with a link and a password for viewing.”

Hope you enjoy the week.
