Welcome December!!!! The time of year where half the planet shares the love, and the other half get all grumpy. Now don’t go all analytical on me and tell me my numbers are out 😉
This week we have a new Website of the Week, and some sensational articles from places that you probably wouldn’t expect them to be.
Website of the Week
Travis. Great guy. Great coach. Always has quality!!! If you don’t follow his blog or content, get on board.
General Health and Fitness
I am all for people getting ready for summer. But the issue is when things don’t happen on, or after that time frame. Remember we don’t live for 8 weeks. We live for 8 decades. Make your fitness lifelong.
Poo. Yup. Everyone giggles. It’s a common occurrence (well unless you a brand new parent, and then that horrible green/brown stuff, is not a giggling moment.
ATP. No. Not that one. The other one.
Kneeling push ups. We use them from time to time at the School, but only as a once off testing indicator. We don’t program weeks of them, but instead prefer a full body incline position.
Nice on Chandler!
Shoulders. Most of us have functioning shoulders, while others have sticking points here and there. This is a great article to get those shoulders working better.
Squatting. Not enough people in the general population do it. Why? Because they break you down. They show you things you don’t want to see. But what happens if we can change the warm up?
If you are a weightlifter, then you must follow Catalyst Athletics. If you don’t you are missing out on a tonne of great information. Even if you do have a coach, this article will be a godsend.
Now, this post rocks!!!!!!!!!!!!
Handstand pushups. The exercise that shows off your strength. But how do you do one? Glad you asked….
Diet and Nutrition
In Australia, pears are just coming into season (fuck, I sound like Curtis from the Coles commercials). If you are after some new recipes on pears, click below.
Yoni Freedhoff. One smart guy, and doesn’t mind shedding the light on shonky practices, but he also provides quality information. What are the two easiest lifestyle tweaks? Well, click below.
Another great article from Brad.
All the guns are out in this article!!! Thanks Doc!
What is the Glycemic Index diet??? Click the link.Find out.
Examine. Thank you. Yes, the subject is based on Thanksgiving, but with Christmas, Boxing Day, cricket and New Years Day in next two weeks, this is pretty relevant.
What are you afraid of? Me. Ghost tours, and falling off my speeding downhill bike.
You will definitely feel much better after reading this, and signing up to Sam’s blogs.
How do you feel about kids jumping around where there is possibility of danger. Read it from a parents perspective.
Now this will definitely get people thinking…
Still at Chapter 9. If you are coaching or looking at coaching endurance athletes, go out and buy a copy. You will not be disappointed.
