Things to Read to Get You Over the Hump – 10/19

Here’s a few good reads from the last week to keep you busy while trying to get through another productive day at work:

4 Lies the Fitness Industry Tells You

Nothing here that hasn’t been said before, but all things that need to be said over and over until it actually hits home with the general population. It seems like I read stuff like this all the time yet continue to hear and see all the same old stuff from people at gyms. Good stuff from Steve/Laura.

Why You Need More Strength

A great read from Chad Waterbury, who by the way is a pretty smart guy. It’s a little bit longer than some of the other reads but if you have time to sit down and read you’ll find some pretty good stuff in there. Plus, theres nothing better than a little motivation to get as strong as you can.

 Strength Training Programs and Life: Change is Imminent

Good stuff from Eric. When I was reading this I could see myself through what Eric was saying and I’m sure many others can as well. Sometimes its hard for people as they get older to realize that their not 16 years old anymore and can’t do a ton of stupid crap and wake up the next day and feel like a million bucks. Train smarter, not harder.

Q&A: These are A Few of My Favorite Things

If you’re looking for a little more bang for your buck and start doing movements that will actually work, Tony’s got everything you need. Tony breaks down just what you need for certain body parts/movement patterns so you can make more of your time in the weight room. A few of his recommendations are exactly what you think they would be but he also throws a couple curve balls in there that I doubt you would see coming.
