First up this week is a great piece from Pat Rigsby. It was actually an email he sent out to his list and was posted on his www.patnickandjim.com blog. It’s simply called Pat Rigsy on Getting Things Done. I think for many of us time management is a huge part of success.

Next up is a piece from Teena Murray called The Cardinal Way. Teena is an excellent strength coach and runs a great program. I asked her to contribute an article a few months ago describing their program philosophy at Louisville. I think her piece is exactly what this site needs.

Last up is another piece that will make you think called What Ruins Running. The article, written by Christopher McDougal, originally appeared in the Boston Globe and is based on Chris’s book Born to Run. To learn more about the book you can go to the link below. Chris was also a guest on a recent Strength Coach Podcast. 

Video of the Week

Video of the week is a Standing Diagonal Lifting Pattern. Gray Cook obviously likes diagonal patterns as corrective exercises. We also work on these in progressions for strength. This a “phase 2” exercise.

 

As always don’t forget to check out the StrengthCoach Podcast  at www.strengthcoachpodcast.com.  Anthony has great interviews up with both Chris McDougal and Dan John Also make sure you check out www.strengthandconditioningwebinars.com This is another great educational vehicle that Anthony Renna of the Strength Coach Podcast is developing. Anthony has archived webinars on the site so you learn any time day or night without ever leaving your house. I recently recorded Understanding Sports Hernia for the site.

Hope you enjoy the week.
