Another week, another group of podcasts and articles to read and listen to that I have dived into. Like every other week, there was a ton of content out there both in written form and through podcasts. Enjoy!
Another really good week of podcasts. I think I’ve said this before, but if you are in the field of strength and conditioning or sport performance you should listen to most every podcast that Fergus Connolly jumps on, he’s that good to listen to — and the same goes for any podcast that Mike Boyle hops on to.

Some really good articles this week. Matt Reynolds knocked it out of the park with his minimum effective dose articles – its something more coaches need to think about when it comes to training. Matthew Ibrahim wrote a great article on the Turkish Get Up, which in my opinion should be a staple in any strength program.
