Here are a few good reads to get you through the first week of 2013;
I thought this was a really interesting piece by Alwyn Cosgrove. This puts a whole new perspective on practicing what you preach. Never thought about it in these terms, but it certainly made me think a little.
Really interesting video where Joel Jamieson has a former CrossFit champion James Fitzgerald go through a brutal conditioning circuit that he does to test his MMA fighters to understand how their conditioning is for their upcoming fight. Interesting to see how a CrossFit champion stacks up against MMA fighters.
Dean Somerset has a take on static stretching that seems to be more and more common these days. I’m not where near smart enough to say whether or not static stretching works, but I’m curious to see where we are as an industry 10 years from now when it comes to static stretching.
Another new episode, always worth the listen!
Everything you would ever want to know about pull ups and getting better at them.
