Website of the Week
Fight the Fads has been around since January, and they are already tackling the tough stories and sticking it to those that think they know what they are talking about.
General Health and Fitness
What should women lift? Should they do all the exercises that men do? Should they lift heavy? We have all heard the rot. Now. Read the truth.
Gold Medal Bodies. They are definitely one of my go to resources for information on body weight movement. If you want to be a bad ass for the rest of your life, then take a read.
Plyometric training is one of the buzz words that pop up. But most trainers have no idea how to do them, as well as how to program them into a training cycle.
I have been waiting for an article like this to come out and for good reason. Yes, weight is such an important part in the clinical side of the house. If you carry extra weight around your midsection, your chances of certain diseases are increased. But then again, so are your genetics, as well as your socioeconomic status. But let’s take all that into account. I do believe there is ideal body weight for each of us, but not one for all of us (if that makes sense)….
If you suck at your overhead position (as I do) there are ways and means to get better. One way is to try to follow every ‘expert’ on Facebook, Instagram or You Tube. The other (and better way) is to click on the link below.
This is one bloke I am looking forward to meeting when I next get to Melbourne with a couple of free days. If you have recently suffered an ACL reconstruction, read this article and share it with your doctor and physio.
Scapular winging. The special bond where power and stability, but what is it, and what can we do to fix it? Well luckily we have Dr Quinn, Movement Man (I know corny, but I am a kid of the 80’s and 90’s) has the answers.
Last week we had Nick Tumminello on T spine mobility, this week we have all the crew from On Target Publications provide some more food for thought.
Greg Nuckols. Strengtheory. Deadlift.
The thing I have found is when Eric Cressey posts, I read, and learn. Same applies to this.
Diet and Nutrition
The way to lose body weight is to use more calories than you put into your mouth. Pretty simple message in reality. But, what happens when you can give a slight tweak here and there to burn a couple of calories extra? Well then, let Authority Nutrition help you out.
If you want to follow the right people, then this is the starting point. This article was written to point out the incorrect information given out by Marie Claire (yup, the fashion magazine) . They won’t win themselves any writing gigs with the magazine (which is a shame) but it does make you think of the lack of credentials some people need to have.
The BEST diet? Really? The BESTEST, BESTEST, BESTEST diet ever? Ahh….Now go and read and find out the truth. Thank you Precision Nutrition!!!
GMO!!!! That is enough to send people freaking out, running around like Chicken Little. Do yourself a favour and get a little education. Brad is here to save the day (well for some of you of course. There are others that are all kinds of fucked up).
Train. Eat. Rest. Recover. Repeat. Same old same old training methodology that has been used for decade. But what happens when your sleep is off, and your next event isn’t to far away? And yes, we all know that sleep is part of the recover strategy, but do we really look at it as we should.
Exercise. Movement. Skills we need to learn to get better physically and mentally. But do we know what life skills are provided when we exercise???
Holstee is a great site to get some healthy mindset happening. If you are struggling to find “mindfulness’ then this site won’t do you any harm.
James Clear. Thank you.
I can’t wait for next week to roll around due to the whole week being dedicated to Shoosh. If you don’t know what Shoosh week is, click on the link and sign your local sporting club up to it. It is a brilliant initiative!!
I don’t normally say well done to the politicians, but this is a little different. If we can teach kids that integrity in life, as well as sports, is crucial, we will go a long way. This is a great initiative.
As I have a couple of marathoners in my athletes at the moment, I thought it was about time to delve into endurance training a little deeper. I hope to resurface sometime in the next 3 weeks…..
I was lucky enough to spend 9 hours with Greg last Sunday (it should of been 10 hours, but…too long of a story) on his Mobility and Performance Workshop. If you have not been to Greg’s workshop, you are wasting your money. I have included the link to the Melbourne gig, as well as to the Prepare to Perform page.
