Happy Easter! Just like every other Sunday, we have 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!
Like most weeks, there were a lot of really good podcasts this week. My pick of the week would be Joe DeFranco’s Industrial Strength Show with Aaron Wellman, who is the Head Strength Coach for the NY Giants. Joe is a wealth of knowledge, Aaron is an incredibly smart guy, and Cam Josse was on the call who is also a really smart guy.
People may find this surprising, but I am a big believer in simple things, which is why I really like a lot of the content Mike Robertson puts out, and this week is no different. Simple things always win out.

💥 Coaching Hack — Have people stand on 12-18” boxes for overhead slams. 💥 . . We all know that med ball work is great for training power, learning how to link the upper body and the lower body together through the core. But a lot of times the biggest problem I personally deal with is people not throwing with intent or max effort. ▪️ . . To a degree, having them stand on a box helps to alleviate that. In order to still be able to catch the ball on a rebound you are going to have to throw with more intent. Plus, it allows for a full follow through with the arms.
