Welcome to the third installment!!! Reading. Reading. Playing. Testing. All in a week’s work for a strength and conditioning coach.
I have added a new segment, simply titled, website of the week (no need for a drum-roll, just a small golf clap will do). This week it’s to do with marathon running. A big thank you to a student who pointed me in the direction.
Website of the week
This is a great site for all. Although it’s directed at the crazy people who run that far, there is a decent blog series, podcast, as well as other bits and pieces.
General Health and Fitness
With the Olympics only days away, it was refreshing to see some articles around the use of drugs in sport. Two articles really drew my attention to the plight of clean athletes.
Motivation and Mindset

Sleeping. Once a domain of the strongest people on the planet, now falls into the “too hard” category.

One of the most touchy subjects known to the world of fitness. This doesn’t work. This is better. Some great articles on here.
Mobility and Movement
This will make people stand up and take notice. What are your most important words in the S&C world? Eric Cressey tells it like it is.
Books I have finished
As you can see I am a bit of a compulsive reader, so there are times to just read a book for the hell of it. This was the one that took my fancy this time round.
